“Territorial cohesion is hot. The entrance of this concept in the EU policy‐making arenas offered spatial planners a new opportunity to open the debate on bringing the territorial dimension of EU policies and legislation on the agenda” (Bynes and Van der Lecq, 2005: 1) Territorial cohesion may be defined as “the spatial declination of sustainable development” (Peyrony 2010, p.122): the way how competitiveness, cohesion, and environment protection can blend together in a space with regard to the different territorial scales. While studying the modalities used by the single territories to work out development strategies matching (sometimes only formally) the European criteria, the necessity for an identification of possible ‘Integrated Territorial Development Strategies” came up. Starting from the preliminary definition :“An integrated territorial development strategy aims to develop a territory through all its components and its interrelations. The territory is considered as a dynamic and holistic entity”, the concept has been analysed and debated on occasion of a transnational project of applied research that correlated various planning experiences in 9 European countries by focusing on the integration level and on the capacity of territorial inclusion in Programming documents.
