We consider the problem of recognizability of some classes of polyominoes in the theory of picture languages. In particular we focus our attention oil the problem posed by Matz of finding a non-recognizable picture language for which his technique for proving the non-recognizability of picture languages fails. We face the problem by studying the family of L-convex polyominoes and some closed families that are similar to the recognizable family of all polyominoes but result to be non-recognizable. Furthermore we prove that the family of L-convex polyominoes satisfies the necessary condition given by Matz for the recognizability and we conjecture that the family of L-convex polyominoes is non-recognizable.
