soffit


Explanation:
that's what my dictionary gives.. and here is the Oxford's description of those... any use?

"underside of an architectural structure, such as an arch, a balcony, or overhanging eaves.
-ORIGIN early 17th cent.: from French soffite or Italian soffitto, based on Latin suffixus 'fastened below'

agree  xxxAnneM: my dictionary also gives 'soffit' for 'plafón' in Spanish and there are several references for 'painted soffits' eg. ,"... dedicated to the Mother of God of Roser, with painted soffits"
