Architecture / Description of a museum
Italian term or phrase: campata
This term appears numerous times in the guide I'm translating. Here are a few examples:

La serie dei marmi romani continua nelle campate XXXVIII-XLII:

Le campate XXI-XXXVIII della galleria meridionale espongono materiali di provenienza locale

La collezione si distribuisce in dieci campate.

The most common translations of this term are "bay", which is inappropriate, and "vault", which may apply to a museum, but perhaps not in the architectural sense (i.e. a storage area). Does anyone know the proper translation for this term in context?
