 Water is a key element for the development of a society. In this series of conferences, the important role that water supply has had in the development of Cartagena throughout its history will be announced. The conferences want to connect the past with the present, thus the ACCQUA project (FCT-22-18736) launched by the Higher Technical School of Civil Engineering, Canals and Ports and Mining Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, seeks respond to the challenges posed by the sustainable management of water supply today and in the future through the connection between art and science.

Today when we enter the Roman Theater Museum, we see the remains of a Roman fountain ( Lacus ) that served to supply water to the city and especially its port. The Roman theater itself had both cisterns to store water and sewers that allowed the surplus to be evacuated, which shows how water management has been one of the challenges that human beings have had to face in each era in order to advance and develop a way of life that has survived to this day.
