The purpose of this research aims to identify innovative reticular models for a territorial development of a rural, systemic and integrated tourist offer. The idea is to empirically analyze the potentialities and the obstacles to rural tourism development in a specific area of ​​the Calabria region according to the perspectives defined by MiBACT's Italian Strategic Tourism Development Plan 2017-2022. This expressly envisages a tourism development for rural and mountain areas integrated with the quality agri-food supply chain. Attention is paid to the social and environmental sustainability of actions and to the forms of collaboration between small enterprises and local public actors in the direction of increasing competitiveness. In this framework, research will be geared towards investigating in particular existing and potential interconnections with organic farming chains and multifunctional farms that are relevant actors of this possible integration
