samples of undisturbed light structural concrete (LSC)
Explanation:
Although in the Italian text "indisturbati" modifies "campioni," in practice "undisturbed" refers first to the concrete from which the samples are taken, and only secondarily to the samples themselves. (In other words, the concrete should not have been stirred, floated, vibrated, or otherwise treated before the samples are taken.)

The Italian abbreviation "CLS" stands for "calcestruzzo leggero strutturale," i.e., "light structural concrete" (LSC).

In full, "Taking of samples of undisturbed light structural concrete, for rupture testing."

In context, the Italian might be intended as an instruction, directing the construction engineer to take the samples...

Cheers,
HC
