Abstract

This article explores the role of water in ancient Italic religions, with a focus on Central Adriatic Italy (Marche and Abruzzo) and Emilia Romagna. The different types of water are examined through a phenomenological perspective, to consider how variations in water type affected the choice and use of places for religious ritual.
