spot color
Explanation:
Have a look at this description of an offset printer under the section "Innovazioni intelligenti" - it explains that the "gruppo spalmatore" can be used for printig "spot"

Now look at this definition (from a glossary for "dummies" :-) )

Spot Color: When printing in CMYK color (see “cmyk”), often times certain colors can not be achieved. This is when “spot colors” are called upon. An extra printing plate with the spot color is added to the printing process. Spot colors are also used for limited color print jobs, since it’s sometime cheaper to print just the single or double spot colors rather than the entire 4 used in CMYK process printing. The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is the most widely recognized system for spot colors.

So it looks like your "4 colori" are CMYK and since they are not able to print all colors (e.g. bright blues) there is an additional "vernice da spalmatore" or spot color.
