Italian Signs, OC Streets (pace Fred)

Bank of Italy
Chiarini Fountain
I propose an ongoing, semester-length side project to find, identify, and post photos of "Italian signs" (identifiable traces of Italian American and Italian artistic, cultural, commercial, and other influences) in Orange County.  If, as you go about your day in Orange County, you notice something potentially interesting that fits this description, please take a photo with your cellphone and send it in.  To start us off, I chose perhaps two of the best known: 1. the faded 'Bank of Italy' sign in Old Town Orange, by the circle; 2. the Chiarini Fountain in the Artist's Village of Santa Ana.
