In Italian, "Pentagramma" is a musical term. Cf. "Pentagramma per voce
But in English, a pentagram is an occult symbol-- a pentacle (5-pointed
star), usually inscribed inside a circle, and associated with witchcraft,
sorcery, and (by some) Satanism.
See http://www.exposingsatanism.org/signsymbols.htm for nice samples. ;-)
And no, the Unicode Standard hasn't encoded any pentagrams yet -- or
hexagrams or baphomets, for that matter.
