Notes to answerer
Asker: Hello Jean,
Yes, that's what it refers to. I don't have a picture or description but I'm assuming it's one of those mesh-type structures protecting the rockface that you so often see along Italian roads (Usually accompanied by a "caduta massi" sign). I simply had no idea what they're called in English! This seems like the right term (and also includes "mesh").
