Italian term or phrase: la dipendente \"protasi\"
Contesto:

La frase "ipotetica", o "condizionale", esprime un’ipotesi o una condizione perché un fatto, un evento, espresso nella reggente, si realizzi. Esempio: La squadra avrà un premio se vincerà la partita. La frase reggente è detta anche "apodosi" e la dipendente "protasi". Insieme formano il "periodo ipotetico".

English translation:the dependent clause"protasis"
Explanation:
la dipendente = dependent or subordinate clause
Protasi = protasis

A full conditional sentence (one which expresses the condition as well as its consequences) therefore contains two clauses: the dependent clause expressing the condition, called the protasis; and the main clause expressing the consequence, called the apodosis

A dependent clause is a clause that provides a sentence element with additional information, but which cannot stand alone as a sentence. A dependent clause can either modify an adjacent clause or serve as a component of an independent clause. Some grammarians use the term subordinate clause as a synonym for the dependent clause. Others use the subordinate clause to refer only to adverbial dependent clauses.

The different types of dependent clauses include content clauses (noun clauses), relative (adjectival) clauses, and adverbial clauses.

The dependent clause expressing the condition, called the protasis.
