Italian term or phrase: treggia
Rustico veicolo a slitta, costruito con due tronchi di circa 15 cm di diametro, uniti alla cima, se al traino vi era un paio di buoi, paralleli se vi era un solo animale, quasi sempre un asno. Questi veicoli, se così si possono chiamare, slittando sulla carreggiata, riuscivano a transitare per stradicciole fangose, piene di sassi e buche e superare anceh notevoli pendenze.

The text refers to the use of this 'vehicle' in Italy. I was thinking of "travois" (used by the native Indians) as opposed to 'sled'. Any better ideas out there?
