Fiuggi water is situated in Lazio at the foot of Monti Ernici.

Fiuggi and its spa complex represent the largest resource for this area. The purifying capacity of these waters has been recognized since ancient times.

Prehistorically the basin of Fiuggi was a lake, which over time due to volcanic phenomena and lacustrine sedimentation filled up over time with layers of lime, clay, tuff, and ash.

Today the water filters through a blanket of volcanic deposits emerging in numerous water sources.

The secret in the properties of Fiuggi water stem from its unique composition. Fiuggi water has diuretic effects and facilitates the elimination of uric acid, metabolic waste and metabolic nitrogen.

Fiuggi, originally called Anticoli di Campagna, gained fame as early as the 14th century, when Pope Boniface VIII claimed his kidney stones had been healed by the mineral waters from the nearby Fiuggi spring. Two centuries later Michelangelo also extolled the virtues of the water that cured him of what he called "the only kind of stone I couldn't love." Soon Acqua di Fiuggi was being sent in bottles to all of Europe's royalty. Not until the turn of the 20th Century did it become fashionable to make pilgrimages to spa towns, and it was around this time that the King of Italy renamed Anticoli in honor of its most celebrated attraction - The Fiuggi Water.

From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Fiuggi and many nearby hill towns were part of the Papal States. Unlike its neighbors, Anticoli di Campagna provided a source of revenue through the sales of its miraculous waters, and so it was often "bestowed" upon noble families in payment for services rendered. Sometimes these aristocrats didn't bother to visit the town, but they always sent a delegate to make sure none, or few, of the profits stayed in town. These upper-class outsiders slowly covered the original medieval walls with painted plaster similar to that found in present day Rome, changing the appearance of the town. Today a very active group of local residents is slowly restoring the stone façades in an effort to restore the city to its medieval form.

Acqua di Fiuggi is best known in Italy for its history and various healing properties. In Italy the water is served at many restaurants and is popular in all major supermarket chains. Many Europeans drink the water daily for its light and smooth taste and for it's supposed cleansing and depurative capacities (purifying) effects to the body. The source of the water runs through ancient volcanic deposits in the Ernici mountains which has an eco system that has historically been incredibly unaltered by man. In Europe it is classified as an Oligomineral water which is low in mineral content, It contains certain components of the humic substance group which claim to give the water its health benefits. Oligomineral waters are light and thus absorbed by the body much quicker than other waters. Fiuggi has been proven to be effective in breaking down and flushing out kidney stones from the body and improving kidney function - in addition it is also used as a way to purify and cleanse the body. It is thought to be beneficial in the removal of metabolic waste, assist in weight loss, and help to remove and flush out any toxins from the kidneys via the urinary tract system. Since it helps flush out the urinary tract system many claim that it is helpful to rid of gout, uric acid and may increase the metabolism.

From the 60's to the 90's Fiuggi was known by its aggressive advertising slogan "Fiuggi - the water that keeps you young".
