Italian term or phrase: forma maritata a tutori vivi
I know this term is long, but it seems to be one concept. Given the context, it seems to refer to the type of vine that is bound on trellises. Is there an equivalent term in English? I can't find anything online for this. Here is the context:

Sul territorio delimitato hanno impiantato viti i paleoliguri, gli etruschi, i romani, influenzati anche dalla presenza di popolazioni celtiche. Ai diversi influssi si deve la diffusione dell’arbustum gallicum, ****forma maritata a tutori vivi,**** più alta e adatta ad ambienti fertili di pianura, e la vinea characatae, forma d’allevamento bassa, di origine greca, idonea per aree collinari.

the "married" form, trained up the trunks of trees
Explanation:
See no. 2 below. "Tutori vivi" literally means "living guides", but I think it's better to explain that this means the vines are trained to grow up living trees.

"Four of the six types of grapevine training described by Pliny and Columella are shown. The other two are the pergola or vitis camerata (5) and the simple yoke or vites jugatae or jugatis directa (6).

1. Tree-leaning (arbustum italicum): the vine tendrils rested on elms or poplar trees.

2. "Married" (arbustum gallicum): the vines were trained to climb along the trunks of trees with little foliage, usually maples or willows.

3. Compluvium-shaped (jugatio compluviata): the vines were tied to poles arranged like the roof of a Roman house (compluvium), open at the centre.

4. Free-standing (vites suberectae): the vines required no support."

Arbustum gallicum is the name given by the Romans to this technique. It means "vineyard of the Gauls".
