Explanation:
"Lattoniere" is, according to the dictionaries, a "tinsmith" (although I've never met one).
In the context, "opere da lattoniere" appears to refer to objects specially constructed by metalworkers out of precoated galvanised sheet metal.

Explanation:
Hi again
It's sheet metal OK, but when the Italians use this term they're usually talking about gutters and the like. Incredibly enough, you can use the adjective "rainwater" to describe this stuff.
