Italian term or phrase:mascherina
It's a list of terms concerning an industrial refrigerator. Full description is "mascherina del pannello di controllo". It's the "holed" panel underneath the pushbuttons, for example.
Explanation: Hi there,
You're spoiled for choice of answers for this one!
As is often the case, the Italians are more fastidious in their definition, adding the expression "mascherina" to tell the reader that the panel is just a panel and has no components mounted to it, but in English we don't use these niceties, and it's a control panel, whether the controls and other devices are fitted or not.
