Acquaviva delle Fonti

Acquaviva delle Fonti is a town and comune of the Metropolitan City of Bari, Apulia, southern Italy. The name "Acquaviva" comes from the large flow of groundwater flowing into the subsoil; Acqua-water/Viva-alive to enhance the abundance of underground water. The elevation is 300m above sea level, and the town is 26km from the Adriatic Sea and Bari, which is the biggest city of the region. The Ionian Sea is more than 45km away.Acquaviva houses one of the biggest hospitals of all of southern Italy, the Ospedale Generale Regionale Francesco Miulli, or Hospital Miulli, which has almost all surgery departments and even a center for the treatment of rare diseases. On 30 September 2006 was officially inaugurated the new structure of the Hospital "Francesco Miulli" in "Curtomartino" area, 4km outside Acquaviva on the road for Santeramo in Colle. Forty months of implementation, more than 170 technical engineers, surveyors, architects, 90000m2 of total area, 16000m2 of which are covered. More than 600 workers employed to build this huge structure that incorporates a total of 705 beds.ClimateAcquaviva enjoys a Mediterranean fresh climate with mild winters and warm to hot, dry summers. Snowfall in winter is very rare but possible. During the summer of 2008 temperatures reached as high as 42C.HistoryThe origins are uncertain. Some scholars and historians trace the foundation around the 4th-5th century BC in the area of Salentino hamlet, a few kilometers from the modern town, on a hill overlooking a fertile plain area. Probably the greater fertility of the land in the valley, the abundance of spring water that flowed into the ground a few feet from the surface, or some devastation were the causes that led the people of Salentino to move to the current city center.
