Hi Gustavo,

Based on the info we have so far, this page is built out of 2 PDFs and 
one of them has been produced with unsufficient resolution. It has been 
treated as an image, so basically one could say this is not a PDF in the 
sense a PDF is vector with images included into it.

If there is a bug in Scribus, you should be able to reproduce it. That 
is, import 2 PDFs like these and output them...

In short, I think the source of the issue is the image on the left.

No matter what are the settings you used to create the final PDF in 
Scribus, I don't know any ways of affecting only one image and not all 
image at the same time.

I would go back to the original PDFs and I would even go further 
upstream to the source to find out where in the process that low 
resolution occured.
