    Hm... Remarkably few links. Could you give us the whole sentence?

    Most of those links are to .br sites, so I'd suspect it to be from Portuguese, not Italian.

    I agree. The only Italian results are for the town of Forno a Massa

    Hi

    In Portuguese the expression "forno a massa" does not exist, that I know of.

    But, if we introduce a comma or other ortographic signs, this expression makes sence:

    For exemple:

    A cozinha fechou a porta do forno. A massa começava a subir.
    The cook closed the door of the oven. The pasta was rising.
    or
    Depois de aquecer o forno, a massa ganha altura
    After heating the oven, the pasta begins to rise.

    So this expression is common in Portuguese, as "...forno. A massa... or "...forno, a massa...
