service panel (circuit breakers panel/box)


Explanation:
"protezioni elettriche" are
automatic circuit breakers, trip switches, fuses, automatic disconnects etc.
things that provide "protection from short circuit and overload conditions"
This link explains the difference between "old" system (main panel and separate fuse box) and new style systems whereas the breakers are integrated in the service panel
