This is the pipe-like gizmo that the slat curtain (if that is the right term, see my other questions on this subject) is rolled around up in the roller shutter box. It is 60 – 70 mm in diameter and may have a motor or axle inside or springs like a window shade. The length will depend on the window width, perhaps one to three meters.
I have a few possibilities from dictionaries and the Net but no clear favorite:
roller drum / shaft / drum / roller / tube / tubular shaft or whatever
Dan, roller drums are used in shutters (see link below) and rolling/sliding window treatments made of louvers/slats
