The following definition of this term in Italian is provided at the link below:

Questa, la legge che disciplina un caso specifico (un evento, un accadimento,
uno stato di cose specifico) in modo innovativo, è la classica legge-provvedimento.


Italian wikipedia defines it as follows:

il potere legislativo può emanare leggi che dispongono per uno o più casi concreti e nei confronti di uno o più soggetti determinati; in tal caso siamo di fronte ad una legge meramente formale (la cosiddetta legge-provvedimento) priva di contenuto normativo.

Here is an example of the use of the term "Special law" in this context
