I must admit I chose your answer because you are a sculptor and therefore familiar with the matter. But how can you explain that Zanichelli has both high relief and alto rilievo?

Its normal, when writing in English, that an author can use
Explanation: high relief and haut relief when dealing with French sculpture or both high relief and alto rilievo when dealing with Italian sculpture, because it was the term the sculptor lived with. But the English equivalent is high relief, which means the same thing (the sculpture has a background but is raised above the background to a high degree). There is no quantitative difference between the elevations except for low-medium-high.
