Hi Alessando,
It isn't immediately recognisable to me. My first thoughts were towards M. albata, but the central spines look longer and don't have any darker tips. I'd like to see a clearer and closer picture of the spines before making a firm judgement. Can you say something about the size and the flowers if it has flowered for you? It does look familar but I just can't place it at the moment!

The photo isn't all that clear but If I was to take a guess I would go for M.vareaculeata. If the spines were tipped black then it would be M.saetigera woodsii.

I did think of M.meuhlenpfordtii but that species tends to divide dichotomously and not produce offsets, also the spines are more curved then straight.
We really need a better picture.
