E.C.I., Venice: cute

“E.C.I.” burglar alarm, Venice • Cute plastic pairing on the tiny church-bound isle of San Giorgio. I’m guessing the green one signals intruders, and the red one fires. • Spotted: Cini Foundation, San Giorgio, Venice, Italy, 2011

  1. I do like the Euro sounders, I think they look a bit more unobtrusive than the standard fayre we have adorning buildings over here.

    I think also in Europe you don’t see every other sounder being a bodged in rough job and/or half arsed DIY cobble, so they all look neater in general. We should have stuff over here for professional installers, but then most of the pros on these shores I wouldn’t want working in my house so I think really it’s something else to add to the ‘why Britain is doomed’ list.
