Hello Andrea,

You may want to have a look at the Sunrise Commander, either with or
without the Tree extension:

    http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Sunrise_Commander

With the Tree extension you can press C-Return to recursively unfold
the current subtree, showing all the subdirectories inside it and how
they're nested within one another. Without the Tree extension, you
can press C-c b (sr-flatten-branch), select "d" to display all the
directories inside the current branch and then (eventually) sort them
using different criteria.

Cheers,
