Given that I believe that a ferrallista is a steel fixer, meaning, according to the Dictionary of Civil Engineering. a skilled man who cuts and bends steel reinforcement and wires it into position ready for the concrete to be poured around it, and attends during the casting of concrete to correct any bars which are out of place.

Workers may carry out any of the tasks listed above, but may also be involved in:
Formwork - helping to build and dismantle the temporary wooden or metal structures that mould liquid concrete.
Steel fixing and bar-bending - bending and fixing the bars used to reinforce concrete structures.
Concreting - placing liquid concrete for foundations, floors, beams etc. The concrete is placed in layers, vibrated with machines to consolidate it and smoothed off.
