Default cartouche

I've been unable to identify the origin and meaning of this cartouche on what I understand is an Italian transitional rapier of the second half of the 18th C.
I've had my [ex] Sicilian mother-in-law, who was a professor of language, attempt to decipher the motto but I am not convinced by her efforts (she was never convinced by my efforts either) so I thought I would open up the mystery to the global experts.
