INTRODUCTION

This volume approaches the history of water in the Iberian Peninsula in a novel way, by linking it to the ongoing international debate on water crisis and solutions to overcome the lack of water in the Mediterranean.

What water devices were found? What were the models for these devices? How were they distributed in the villas and monastic enclosures? What impact did hydraulic theoretical knowledge have on these water systems, and how could these systems impact on hydraulic technology? Guided by these questions, this book covers the history of water in the most significant cities, the role of water in landscape transformation, the irrigation systems and water devices in gardens and villas, and, lastly, the theoretical and educational background on water management and hydraulics in the Iberian Peninsula between the sixteenth and the nineteenth centuries.

Historiography on water management in the territory that is today Spain has highlighted the region’s role as a mediator between the Islamic masters of water and the Christian world. The history of water in Portugal is less known, and it has been taken for granted that is similar to its neighbour. This book compares two countries that have the same historical roots and, therefore, many similar stories, but at the same time, offers insights into particular aspects of each country.

It is recommended for scholars and researchers interested in any field of history of the early modern period and of the nineteenth century, as well as general readers interested in studies on the Iberian Peninsula, since it was the role model for many settlements in South America, Asia and Africa.

Toda a área de Lisboa a norte dos Restauradores, a ocidente do Bairro Alto e a este de São Vicente de Fora nasceu, basicamente, do trabalho de equipa da Câmara Municipal na segunda metade do século XIX. Tradicionalmente tida como uma cidade suja, com falta de água e pouco industrializada, Lisboa foi radicalmente transformada pelos Liberais entre 1840 e 1900, quando a municipalidade se lançou na modernização da cidade. Mas, na sua agenda, não constava apenas a construção das infraestruturas da cidade. A Lisboa moderna tinha de ser verde. O jardim da Estrela foi construído, a avenida da Liberdade foi aberta, o parque da Liberdade foi projetado, e o Campo Grande pensado para ser os pulmões de Lisboa. Este livro conta a história das visões, vontades, e valores dos homens que a partir do pelouro dos Passeios e Arvoredos da Câmara Municipal de Lisboa contribuíram para a transformação de Lisboa numa cidade voltada para o cidadão. O triunfo dos jardins é um livro que interessa a todos os que queiram conhecer as sementes que foram lançadas há cerca de século e meio, antes de Lisboa ser galardoada como Capital Verde Europeia 2020.
