My understanding of function is to stop clutch pedal vibration when releasing the clutch pedal.

Totally Different to damper springs fitted in the clutch plate.

Hopefully someone else will post if ever seen on petrol before.

On the diesels Prior to the part you have posted pic of the pipe was coiled a few times in approx ౩ inch diameter to attempt achieve same effects.

No matter what it is, it certainly doesn't look good, it's in line of getting damaged by road debris and the pipes could crack due to vibration. I'd be looking again to see if has come unclipped from something higher up.
Thanks NickC42 thanked for this post

Google isn't always the answer to everything!
If you wish to Google something try land rover Discovery hydraulic clutch damper.
Or Honda hydraulic clutch damper.
Or Nissan hydraulic clutch damper.
Or take a chance and believe my post which tells you it's not a problem and don't worry about it.
You could even do a search on this site for clutch damper.
It was on this site I saw the info about fiat 500 / panda clutch damper , clutch pedal issues and retrofit.

Sometimes the function is also to limit the speed at which the clutch can be engaged and so limit shock loading the drive train.

Sometimes when they go wrong they absorb so much of the clutch pedal travel the clutch doesn't disengage fully causing gear selection problems, grinding etc

Think of this you may have a unique Panda petrol with a hydraulic clutch damper.

If it has a DMF the DMF has more than one function.

Yes to damp out vibration and reduce shocks on the crank and drivetrain.
