Foot-pedal sink, Cesena, Italy

I thought this was brilliant, and I would like to see it in more place: a bathroom sink with no handles, but instead a foot pedal to turn on the water. No touching anything with dirty hands --- just the sole of your foot that's not the goal of cleaning in any case. I see the issues for disability, of course, and the way that sensor sinks make it obsolete as well, but I was still startled in retrospect to have never encountered this solution in a bathroom before.
