Yes, lievito naturale would translate to sourdough.

Pasta di riporto is the method of using old dough to start the new batch.
Pizza is not bread.

Da michele uses pasta di riporto as a method of pizza dough....that means the puntata is about 8 h and normally the appretto is really short3/4h.....pasta di riporto doesnt need too much fermentation time....what do you think about This....

I don't have any thoughts on it one way or the other. I see no reason why it would be better than the direct method. The fermentation time will be a function of the quantity of old dough added and the ambient temperature, not the pasta di riporto method per-se.

I have done some reading in the subject by now and only reason for yeast in old dough to rise faster than in normal sourdough is lag time (in theory). As sourdough change environment or cycles of feeding it takes some time to adapt to the new environment. which might slow down sourdough compared to old dough which has more alike environment to the actual dough. This would be in theory from what i have read all else being equal which is hard to do.
One specific yeast is one specific yeast in old dough or in sourdough.
Sorry for senteces and writing. Hope you understod.
