Italian term or phrase:clivio
Mai in tutta la vita ci fu dato godere una così splendida visione di primavera come quella di stamattina al levar del sole…Dalle nostre finestre lo sguardo spazia sul grande, largo ***clivio*** della città antica, tutto giardini e vigneti, sotto la cui verzura chi mai potrebbe supporre alcuna traccia dei vasti e popolosi quartieri ora scomparsi?
Ossignore, dammi pazienza... It's obviously not Clivo, the comune. I'm tempted to think of Latin - clivium - which indicates a declivio. Does that work for your context? Is the town located in a basin of some sort.
Are we talking of this place:
Clivio is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Varese in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 50 km northwest of Milan and about 10 km northeast of Varese, on the border with Switzerland. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 2,010 and an area of 2.9 km².
Clivio borders the following municipalities: Arzo (Switzerland), Besazio (Switzerland), Cantello, Ligornetto (Switzerland), Saltrio, Stabio (Switzerland), Viggiù.

hillock or slope
Explanation: I suppose the impossibility to find a translation for clivio is due to a spelling mistake. Clivo stands for slope or hillock
