Terra pericolosa is an Italian phrase for "dangerous land", used in cartography to denote regions that are believed to be likely to put the travellers in jeopardy. Such regions would probably not have been mapped or documented fully.
The phrase is also used in a non-mysterious sense. Indeed, a scientific book on natural disasters published in 2005 has the main title "Terra Pericolosa".
