I think there was a typo and the word should be propriocettiva. You will find propriocettore defined as proprioceptor in Ital-Eng dictionaries.

n. A sensory receptor, found chiefly in muscles, tendons, joints, and the inner ear, that detects the motion or position of the body or a limb by responding to stimuli arising within the organism.

agree  James (Jim) Davis: With a degree in psychology I don't need a dictionary for this one. Close your eyes, move your toes and feel your proprioceptors at work.
