Italian term or phrase: teste
A bid for contract for a building.

The phrase is "Muratura di mattoni in laterizio semipieni a due o più teste."

The client glossary requires use of "hollow clay bricks" for mattoni in laterizio. I'm assuming teste is a unit of measurement here, but I don't know what the equivalent in English would be.

Another phrase includes this "Muratura di mattoni in laterizio semipieni dello spessore superiore a due o più teste ."
