over the years, with F.D. visiting the University of Parma, and G.M. the Univer-
sity of Erlangen-Nuremberg, a number of times: the support of such institutions
is hereby acknowledged. G.M has been partially supported by the minister of
higher education via the national project “Calcolo delle Variazioni” and by the
