Italian term or phrase: pali di giro
E' un espressione che ho trovato su un testo tecnico descrivente le caratteristiche costruttive di una tenda di circo. Penso che con l'espressione "pali di giro" vogliano indicare i pali di sostegno secondari del telone e che sono disposti in maniera più o meno radiale... Qualche suggerimento????
Grazie
Giuseppe

Thanks. They are talking not only about the smallest poles of outer edge but about all the poles in any circular or rectangular circus tent. Nevertheless, I think that what you suggested is what they meant.

Kind regards
