Is it a bracket for an engine bay light switch?

These two pictures seem to have it but not as a light switch mount.

I think the silver component IS an under bonnet light switch but that it is a on a separate, horizontal mounting tang. I wasn't sure the top picture didn't show a rubber hose going through the vertically orientated fitting.

There is definitely a flick switch in the second photo, that would appear to be nothing to do wth the first photo which seems to be a cable of some sort, there is no sign of this in the 2nd photo at the bracket or under the air box, however there is a cable clamped to the inner wing panel that I suspect is something to do with the switch Huh?
Seems odd though that it's a welded bracket?

The hole in it is grommet sized so a cable would be obvious.

My S2 has a festoon bulb attached to the underside of the bonnet. Not sure about S1's. It seems typically Lancia to produce and weld that bracket just to hold a pipe when they could have used clips on the wheel arch similar to the oil cooler pipes on the opposite side. I haven't seen this bracket before either.

Festoon is mounted on middle of bonnet underside on S2 with switch up by bulkhead rain gutter. I think the hole is grommet size so cable with be my thought.

How about a mounting bracket for an airhorn trumpet?
