Thank you so much! With your help the new situation is:

Now everything works, but still it seems there is a problem with amcl, since it constantly changes (incorrectly) the transformation between /map and /odom.

The green lines are the inflated obstacles, so they are correct, I do not display obstacles because they are too heavy for rviz, but they works.

I tried to change amcl.launch in order to reduce the corrections, but the problem remains...

Here are the configuration files

costmap_common_params.yaml

observation_sources: laser_scan_sensor

laser_scan_sensor: {sensor_frame: base_laser, data_type: LaserScan, topic: scan, marking: false, clearing: false}

#Set the tolerance we're willing to have for tf transforms

  robot_base_frame: base_link

  #Set the update and publish frequency of the costmap

  #We'll use a map served by the map_server to initialize this costmap

  max_rotational_vel: 0.3
  min_in_place_rotational_vel: 0.05

  escape_vel: -0.1

  #For this example, we'll use a holonomic robot
  holonomic_robot: true

  #Since we're using a holonomic robot, we'll set the set of y velocities it will sample
  y_vels: [-0.3, -0.1, 0.1, 0.3]

  #Set the tolerance on achieving a goal

      #We'll use the Dynamic Window Approach to control instead of Trajectory Rollout for this example
      dwa: true

      #How far the robot must travel before oscillation flags are reset
      oscillation_reset_dist: 0.05

      #Eat up the plan as the robot moves along it

and this is the amcl launch file:
