Italian term or phrase: sfere omocentriche
... sala dedicata alla cultura scientifica: qui si viene accolti da due gigantografie delle sfere omocentriche e della Terra.
It is the catalogue of an exhibition. I guess they "omocentriche" means something like "man-centered", but I don't know the technical Eglish expression.
Thanks for any suggestions.
