Ok, I found a Red Hat Knowledge Base (DOC-3619) explaining this.

[snip]
However, a local volume group has been incorrectly set up as
clustered, and there is not a cluster set up for the locking, when
unset the cluster flag is attempted to be removed, vgchange will print
out "Skipping cluster volume group."

In order to fix this, edit the /etc/lvm/lvm.conf file and set
locking_type = 0. Then run the command vgchange -cn VolumeGroupName.
After this, change the locking_type in the /etc/lvm/lvm.conf back to
the original value.

It works. Just in case other incurr in the same problem...

Sorry for the rumour,
Gianluca
