guardie giullari


Explanation:
je pense qu'il s'agit ici d'un jeu de mots, donc il est mieux de continuer sur la lignée des "giullari".

agree  SilvanaCollura: si è un gioco di parole...quindi vada per "guarda matti", anche se non è molto diffuso (parapetti non mi pare abbia molto a che fare col contesto)

Premesso che non so nulla del contesto, ma se non esiste nessun parapetto e garde-fous è solo una parola buttata lì per reiterare il termine "fous" potresti tradurre con un ironico:
"tutto un mondo di giullari, giullari del re e amenità varie..."(o più arditamente "...e giullarità varie...")
Non mi viene in mente nient'altro!
