this is a great nature image, is it a member of the artichoke family?

It is a wild flower of the Mediterranean flora. The shape is strange and looks like a pine cone or an artichoke but the content is fragile.
This flower blooms in the month of July in arid and stony place (Garrigue) and is protected from collection by a Ligurian law.
