The recent framework of Italian territorial re-organization produces new opportunities and challenges for regional systems. The LEADER Approach of UE Development Plan offers an interesting case study: the GAC (Coast Action Group), asso- ciation of public and private stakeholders created to improve foreshores and their neighbouring territories. This work takes into account a Sicilian GAC which is enhancing a stretch of Southern coastline of about 100 km through infrastructure development, shing tourism and destination marketing. By using a geographic and an ethnographical approach with deep interview methodology, this study analyses the GAC structure considering some dynamics of interaction between po- licy makers and «base» partners, as well as their perception of the common project. We have paid special attention to the stakeholders concurrences and differences about the GAC’s organisation and activity.
