grazie Federico for your answer.
Here's the example:

\score {
        \new Staff \with {
        \remove Clef_engraver
        \override StaffSymbol #'stencil = ##f
        \override NoteHead #'no-ledgers = ##t
        \override NoteHead #'style = #'slash
        \override NoteHead #'font-size = #' -3 }
                \time 4/4
                \repeat "volta" 2 {             
                \relative c' {
                f4 f8 f~ f f f f | }

        \layout { }
        \midi { }

As you can see, ties starts and ends not 
from the lowest point of the slashes,
but from the point they should start and end, 
if note heads would be the standard ones. 
Not a big trouble but Lilypond as i wrote 
i'm sure can do this better.
