Thanks for your tips. They helped me find the problem. As Daniel said, it
was related to malformed .prj files. Most of the shapefiles were generated
with R Studio. The prj files (slightly diferent in R) are well recognized
by QGis an ArcGis, but not by GeoNode. Files reprojected and exported in
both  QGis and ArcGis are well referenced in GeoNode (as Stefan confirmed).
Thanks for your help.
