Italian term or phrase: cornice orecchiata
Si tratta della descrizione della facciata di una villa ottocentesca. La frase esatta è la seguente:
"Una riquadratura, a cornici orecchiate rimarcate dalla linea continua del marcapiano, intervallata con pannelli sottofinestra, contornava le finestre del sottotetto".
Ho trovato questa immagine per finestre con cornici orecchiate:
