Abstract: The aim of this paper is to fill a gap in a proof of a theorem by B. Segre regarding the regularity of linear systems of curves in $ {P^2}$. This is done by showing that some subschemes of "fat points" of $ {P^2}$ form a flat family over an integral quasiprojective variety of which we give an explicit construction.
