" .. 150dpi per le immagini con scritte e particolari su sfondi omogenei a cui dare rilievo e che non vogliamo vengano visualizzati con scalettature."

I think I know what they mean, but is there a specific term for this?

aliasing
Explanation:
Aliasing is the well-known effect on computer screens, in fact on all pixel devices, where diagonal and curved lines are displayed as a series of little zigzag horizontal and vertical lines. When the pixels are large, like on computer screens, some kind of remedy is highly desirable.
