A study leading with the Piano di Pezza (Central Italy) vegetation is presented. The study area is a carst plateau located near the Velino Massif, inside the territory of the Sirente-VelinoRegionalPark. This study has essentially concerned with secondary grasslands and, marginally, dwarf shrubs and woods. The phytosociological analysis has let to recognize nine plant associations, four subassociations, one community type and one variant. One association and one subassociation are here proposed for the first time. This paper confirms much of the interpretation models about the vegetation of Central Apennines.
