Word or term in question:

piedi dattilici

Context:

Virgilio lavora sul verso epico, l’esametro dattilico, portandolo insieme al massimo di regolarità e al massimo di flessibilità. Egli plasma il suo esametro come strumento di una narrazione lunga e continua, articolata e variata. Con Virgilio, la frase si libera da qualsiasi schiavitù nei confronti del metro: il periodare può farsi ampio o breve, scavalcare o rispettare la coincidenza con le unità metriche, i piedi dattilici o la linea del verso.

A dactyl is a foot consisting of one long syllable followed by two short ones.
