Italian term or phrase: orditure lignee
plaster finishing is laid over this
Ross
English translation:timbers
Explanation:
My Eng/Ital. technical dictionary (Mursia) lists "orditure" as follows:
orditura del tetto: roof frame
orditura (in legno): roof timbers
It's not clear from your question whether you mean roof, floor or whatever.
But "timbers" is what's meant. Don't need to use "wood" because timbers can be made only of wood (as in timber-frame construction).
Hope this helps.
