Italian term or phrase: a mezzo armature
The document sets forth the technical items to be taught in an Instituto Tecnico Industriale. (I moustrapped myself, thinking I was just doing a transcript and finding this detailed description of the curriculum at the end). Under "Disegno tessile" there is "studio delle sfumature a mezzo armature". I know the general meaning of "armatura" but not the technical weaving sense here. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Tom

Traditionally in our studio design of woven textile patterns were translated onto special forms of graph paper called point paper which were used by weavers in setting up their looms. Most professional textile designers of Design plus Textile Studio use some forms of Computer Aided Design software created expressively for this purpose.
