English translation:Court of Cassation (civil - supreme court of appeal)
Explanation:
There is not standard for this. However the reference is to a specific Italian Institution. It would be silly to translate it with something like the "Law Lords" or even really the "Supreme Court" because that is inthe US not Rome.

neutral  WendellR: Better to leave the title & provide explanation. In a US context, supreme crt of appeal is a contradiction in terms // My comment specifies that it IS US context. The SC is a court to which an appeal can be made but it is not properly a court of appeals.

  -> Only if your definition of a supreme court is the US court. It is the highest of its kind (supreme) and a court of appeal.
