The security of a complex site is strongly dependent on the use of integrated technological systems. Any weakness of the integrated system involves a weakness of the security of the site itself. For this reason it is necessary to design and realize highly integrated, effi cient and reliable security systems. The authors illustrate the work made to design and realize the integrated security system of the Senate of the Italian Republic.
