Art/Literary - Photography/Imaging (& Graphic Arts) / page layout
Italian term or phrase: gabbia (see context)
Are there any colleagues familiar with the principles of graphic design who could confirm whether 'cage' in the context of page layout is used in English. I had a peruse of the web but have not come up with any examples in English.

Context: schematic list of elements covered in a beginners' graphic design course.

Sentence: Principi di impaginazione. ‘Il layout’ elementi caratterizzanti, conoscenza pratica della gabbia /griglia, gerarchia degli elementi, chiarezza, ordine.

Thanks in advance.

Explanation:
It appears to refer to "the grid" (as in the original gabbia/griglia).

This is a simple method to organize the layout in the intersections of a 3x3 grid.
