The reason I am asking that an experienced operator told me that RTTY mode is
restricted bellow 1.810Mc

There is no FCC rule and I can't find any "recommendation" such as the DX window

I am just wondering about the source of this 1.810 comment.

Are you asking because of the upcoming TARA RTTY Melee that seems to

Many band plans (e.g. ARRL's) show RTTY concentrating in 1.80-1.81.

I have 15 RTTY 160M QSO's in my log almost all from W1AW/portables this
year. They tend to cluster in 1.805-1.810 and 1.840-1.845. But with ARRL
160M going on in same weekend as TARA RTTY Melee, and how the entire bottom
50-80 kc of 160M will be occupied for sure, those normally free spots will
be in high demand by CW contesters.
