I hope that I will not annoy, but I have still some more that drive me to despair.

1, 2 sure as hell looks like wild carrot daucus carota.

3, looks like wild sweet pea empty pods (this is not the real name but look it up, however the local version is smaller than the Sicilian one)

Thank you RB for your help. I thought it is Daucus carota, but I was not sure.
Do you mean Lathyrus odoratus? Now, I realize that the fruit tube is empty and the halves of the pods are rolled because of drying.

Actually looking it up here (thanks MWP) it's "probably" http://www.maltawildplants.com/FABC/Lat ... ymenum.php as I have never seen L. odoratus in the wild. I have in Sicily though, its flower is much much larger than L. clymenum.

Ok, I agree. I also haven't seen L. odoratus in the wild. But I know L. clymenum.

There is a tiny chance that your Daucus could be D. rupestris or D. gingidium, distinguished from the leaves and closed fruit, but since D. carota is the most common except at the coast/lithoral/rupestral areas, it is likely that your wild carrot is D. carota.
