Have you ever wondered what electrical wiring in a house looks like in Italy compared to the UK? Gordon Routledge takes us on an enlightening journey through a project in Puglia, Italy investigating how Italians install and protect their electrical systems. He uncovers the secrets behind flexible conduits, robust earthing systems and generous consumer units. Along the way, he explores the importance of solar power and how the electrical supply is changing for the future.
