there are a lot of projects to controll sonos devices from linux devices (personally I like a lot Noson http://janbar.github.io/noson-app/) but I would like to know if there is a way to stream the audio of a linux pc to a Sonos device?

Since you apparently run ubuntu, I think this would be applicable to you. Do note that there will always be a very noticeable delay when streaming your system audio, since you can't control how much buffer the receiving device will do.
The android app you linked to is very interesting.
Thank you @Johnnie for your fast reply
Set up a web radio for my need is like to shoot a bird with an atomic bomb 🙂
I was looking for something more simple. On my android phone I've found this app https://www.airaudio.eu/ which works great, and I would like to find something like for my pc.
I will look more and I hope to update it!
As I use Macs I found that Nicecast form rougue amoeba made it an absolute breeze to setup a local audio stream, that I could then add as a radio station in the Tunein stations and play on my Sonos system.
I did find this link, also maybe there's a simple solution like Nicecast for Linux?
