Ciao Alessandro,
I did something very similar to what you are saying activating
backface culling for both front and back faces this way the overhead
on the graphic card should be minimal, even less than activating the
alpha blending to zero:

osg::CullFace* cull= new osg::CullFace(osg::CullFace::FRONT_AND_BACK);

osg::Group* group = new osg::Group;

group ->getOrCreateStateSet()->setAttribute(cull,
osg::StateAttribute::ON | osg::StateAttribute::OVERRIDE);

group ->getOrCreateStateSet()->setMode( GL_CULL_FACE,
osg::StateAttribute::OVERRIDE | osg::StateAttribute::ON );

This works fine for me using the standard
