    L'evoluzione del rurale. Teoria e politica per lo sviluppo integrato del territorio ABSTRACT: The rural areas in the European Union represent 91% of the territory and 56% of the population. The analysis of their development, is a topic often ne-glected by the regional economists, and delegated to agricultural economists. A condition that appears more and more anachronistic in consideration that, in many cases, rural areas have been able to actively participate to economic and social development taking advantage from the integration between eco-nomic sectors and environmental resources. This article analyses rurality with an evolutionary approach. Three following stages of rurality, named re-spectively agrarian rurality, industrial rurality and post-industrial rurality are analytically presented. They are the result of the redistribution of employment and value between economic sectors along time, but also of the changes in the citizens’ and consumers’ expectations with rurality. Passing from one stage to the other, role of agriculture itself changes.
