rafter ??


Explanation:
It appears to be some kind of roofing element between the actual roof and the tiles. I found a site with drawings that may help. It also talks about your "scempiato" but without indications as to what it actually IS.
Anyway:
/www.comune.pisa.it/regedi/Grafici/FOTO/Gronda2.html
From what I can see based on the sketch, it looks like a rafter.
Hope this helps and GOOD LUCK!
