the garzanti one, on the other side, does not even contains it...

i think you're right :(
anyway, that word is so far adopted...
any suggestion?

true, but colorspace it's a compound word, without a correspondant. so
spazi-colore would be more correct as a translation, but terribly in
italian, sigh
moreover, it's (almost) everywhere in the world translated as "spazio
colore", and "spazio di colore" has another meaning.
maybe "modello di colore" o "profilo di colore" could fit.
but that translation it's less immediate from the english meaningful
term. i think
