[automatically translated] Water is an essential commodity that has always influenced the location of human settlements, allowing the development and guaranteeing livelihoods, health and power. The use of this resource, more valuable and vulnerable, does not always respond to grandfathering criteria, conservation and improvement of the quality and quantity. In recent years, frequent droughts and pollution processes have led to a gradual reduction of water resources available in the various sectors of use and motivated the need to find new solutions for better management of the "water resource." Among the technologies to be proposed with a low environmental impact, especially in the southern regions, a prominent place is given to the constructed wetlands that leverages the capabilities of the medium-vegetation-micro system as a natural filter for the purification of waste water. In constructed wetlands, a crucial role is played by plant species, responsible, in particular, the adsorption of macro and micro elements from the wastewater and the development of efficient aerobic microbial population in the rhizosphere. In the Mediterranean flora, there are many species of plants used in phytoremediation systems used in different countries of the world and characterized by high purification performance. In this paper, shows the main agronomic information for cultivation and use in phytoremediation of Arundo donax L. systems, Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin., Typha latifolia L., etc.
