The flower is one of the very many types of marigolds and the racemes appear to be either Arondo donax or pampas grass.

Arundo donax grows in Tuscany, on the plain near Florence. Maybe it grows in Lombardy too.

Arundo donax grows everywhere. It is a noxious weed and spreads in huge rhizomes and is virtually impossible to get rid of without huge equipment.
