Italian term or phrase: tunnelino (kind of cloche - I think)
used in large scale melon growing - I can imagine what it is. Would it be right to say 'cloche'

Explanation:
Golub has got it exactly - they are those greenhouses that are often seen in the Italian countryside (well they are here anyway) for protecting delicate crops.
Lots of web site hits came up for "tunnel greenhouse"

Spelling mistake?


Explanation:
William, I suppose there's some spelling mistake here: I don't know any such word in Italian, and the only word that sounds like it is tunnel (same meaning as in English), hence tunnelino might be a small tunnel, but this doesn't seem to be much related to melon growing. What about supplying some context?
