Italian term or phrase: rapporti metrico-proporzionali
XXX disegnava le sue architetture utilizzando rapporti metrico-proporzionali corrispondenti a quelli che regolano le relazioni tra le note musicali.

I've come up with 'metrical-proportional ratios'; I see that metrico comes up as quantitative on a proz serach but not convinced that's right here. Any help appreciated.
