Explanation:
Hi
The "devioguida" is the core component the "stalks" that you have to tweak to activate turn signals, lights, wipers, and even music systems on modern cars.

Explanation:
Hi
But I wasn't "shooting from the hip" this time!
As Paola's reference suggests "Ergonomico è anche il volante, con due leve devioguida per avere i comandi principali sempre sotto mano", the "leve devioguida" are simply the stalks that operate the central switch assembly.
There are several pics on the net: try, for example, going to the link I have pasted below, then search for "devioguida" and click that link to see a picture.
Cheers
Derek
