• a bottling hall, 3.300 m2, where the production machinery is situated
• a warehouse for finished product, 4.000 m2
• a warehouse for production materials
• the production process of the mineral water is essentially made up of four distinct phases:
1. the rinsing of the bottles
2. the filling of the bottles
3. the labelling and packing
4. the palletization (the arrangement of the six bottle case on a pallet)
5. transportation unit
The mineral water from the source arrives to the tanks through stainless steel pipes and from there to the bottling plant.
Once the bottles are labelled they are sent to the "the packing" machine that groups them in packs of six.
A "full inspector" along the conveyor belt is utilized to verify the filling levels, the presence of cap and label, automatically discarding any bottles on the line that do not respect the prefixed standards.
This is what Michelangelo, a kidney stone sufferer, wrote in a letter dated 1549. It's one of the oldest and most renowned testimonies of the benefits derived from drinking Fiuggi water.
The story recounts how kings, noblemen, and ambassadors were benefited by drinking the miraculous water because it eased their pain. Pope Bonifacio VIII, who was born in Ciociaria and knew the Fiuggi source well, also used this healthy water.
Over 187 payment orders for transport of the water from Fiuggi to Rome are well documented in the Pope's accounting registries.
In more recent times, other famous notables successfully treated themselves by drinking Fiuggi water: from Papa Pio X to Giovanni Giolitti, to Benedetto Croce and Alcide De Gasperi.
