Italian term or phrase: a dei segni verticali goffi
Contesto:

Questo piano è, in effetti, strategico anche nell'alzato, poiché è constituito da una sorta di buca, sulla quale l'edificio sembra sprofondare, riducendo in propetto, i pilotis che sino a tale buca arrivano, a dei segni verticali goffi e minuti, tali da rendere grave il peso del volume sovrastante.

Molte Grazie,

Barbara
