Italian term or phrase: pile rettangolari cave
costruzione di nuovi viadotti

I viadotti sono strutturalmente modulari, con travi prefabbricate e pile rettangolari e cave, delle dimensioni di 4,40 m x 2,40 m e spessore di 0,40 m. La scelta di questa tipologia è stata dettata dall’esigenza di privilegiare strutture snelle per non appesantire il terreno.

somewhere I've found "pier" used as synonym of pillars...?!

Any suggestion is much appreciated. Grazie!

hollow rectangular piles
Explanation:
Given the context, "pile" is almost certainly referring to pile foundations, which are used in construction. The website referenced gives some general information on pile foundations but with a bit more digging (no pun intended), I imagine you'll find a reference to this particular type somewhere.
