Italian term or phrase: Stemmacanta gigante
Botany!
giant knapweed
Explanation:
I discovered that Stemmacantha rhapontica is the same as Centaurea rhapontica so I checked Centaurea and it's knapweed so I checked Giant knapweed and I got 600 hits.
By the way - Stemmacantha rhapontica is a subsp. of bicknellii...

PS - it appears to be an endangered species

Thanks for the best answer. Actually lots of websites were not interested in the plant, but the 2 words giant knapweed brought up lots of sites about weeds! Yes the plant, a species itself not a subspecies, is rare and the trad is for the Vanoise Nat Park in France. If it is the same plant it seems to have various names, including a third, Leuzea.
Anyway I hope its the right answer, but I will try to confirm definitively with the Park botanists!
