This plant found growing at a quota of 1100 m. on a grass verge along a dirt track in the Italian Appenines. The flower has passed it's prime which may make identification rather more difficult

Not Centaurea jacea in which leaf bases are not decurrent. Above plant has leaves longer, distinctly decurrent on stem, making stem almost winged. C. montana is closer, but leaves above are much more longer.
