If that cantainer has no drainage, be careful of watering too much. Even in a container that drains, I water mine only about once a month.

Welcome! Welcome! @PTonioli
I agree, Patrick, that it looks like a Ponytail Palm. Looks like a nice specimen, too. Good luck on growing it! I had one a long time ago and it wasn't hard to grow, and it didn't get watered very often.
