Dear David your point is interesting,
But unfortunately if you have a quasi-flat surface with some locals maxima, the 
gradient is around zero in a big surface of your domain.
For my problem seems very interesting the tool proposed by Jean:
https://topology-tool-kit.github.io/

The installation seems to be a bit tricky but I want install the software and 
try how it can work.

Responding to Mathieu:
I need a tool that can  run without my supervision and it can find the local 
maxima in an autonomous way.

As soon as possible I come back to you and share my experience.
For the moment I really thank you for your suggestions.

Best Regards,
Andrea

How about using the gradient (filter or python calculator expression) to take 
the derivative and find the points of inflection. Combine that with the 
techniques Mathieu and Jean suggested.

Dear Andrea,
Both Jean's and my method will not work for your case. I'll admit that I missed 
the local part.
The easiest way would be to do it visually with scalar coloring and use "Hover 
Points" or "Hover Cells" to find the exact element you are looking for.
Best,

Dear Jean,
Thanks for your suggestions.
If I have understood correctly, your method can works only in the case in which 
I have only a maxima like this case:
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ce/Gaussian_2d.png

But if I have to find the local maxima in this case:
https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/mlc-downloads/downloads/submissions/27178/versions/6/previews/html/psPeaksExample.html
in which I have three different local max peaks, your method can works 
correctly?

Best regards,
Andrea

use the Edit->Find Data menu

Select Points or Cells.
Select the "from" object (your slice's name)
Select the variable name
Select "is max"
Click on "Run Selection Query"
