Italian term or phrase: PREPARAZIONE DELLE FASCE / BOLLINI
Here is the title for a group of skills in the building trade-fasce makes sense, but bollini? and both together?

Here is the whole sentence:

AUTONOMIA REALIZZATIVA: PREPARAZIONE DELLE *FASCE / BOLLINI*, E DELLA MALTA

What are the *fasce/bollini* here?

Many thanks as always for suggestions

preparation of the vertical skimming level for plastering
Explanation:
In Italy they prepare the plastering level this way:at the top and bottom are the 'bollini' which is a small piece of smooth tile set in some malta as a reference level for plaster.Then with the 'filo a piombo' they do the same below and the fasce are vertical lines of plaster between the bollini.
It's easier to do than to explain!!!!!

I think in my case it is easier to explain and understand than to do! Anyway, I understand perfectly and am very grateful for this answer. I would never have thought of "skimming level". Thanks again.
