Italian term or phrase: giorni medi di copertura magazzin
Any ideas on this one? It's something about stock levels and is used in the text often as though it were a conventional index.
"I giorni medi di copertura dell’intero magazzino hanno evidenziato una tendenza alla diminuzione passando da 105 a 104 a 101 nei tre esercizi"

Explanation:
could be a translation. Even a Google search gave no result except a single unrelated instance (copertura as a... roof), so this must be an unusual expression and what you'll read below is just my interpretation of this rather cryptic text. I interpret this as the average time still unsold goods remain in warehouses before being shipped to dealers. So you might perhaps say something like: the average number of days inventory remains in warehouses decreased from 105 to 104 and 101 during the last 3 financial years. Hope I got it right, but couldn't swear on it. What do you think?
