Terrazzo means terrace

In response to San French’s search for the meaning of terrazzo lighting, terrazzo means terrace in Italian. Hence, terrace lighting. Not carnival lighting but lovely lights to illuminate outside activities when fireflies and stars can’t quite do the job.

It’s also interesting to note that they have been used in the past in Nevada City. They were strung across Broad Street probably before either of us was born.
