La balaustra

I use to call this thing a "railing." One of my Italian correspondents referred to it as a "balustrade." I like the word balustrade. It reminds me, alliteratively of "ballet" and this matches the animated twists and angles of the old railing. It will have to replaced some day and the lines of the dance will be erased. I enjoy it every day.
