The concept of participatory local welfare has been translated into practice in different ways. Nonetheless, little empirical attention has been paid to how the institution building participatory processes developed over time. In this paper we will address this issue through a cross sectional case study of Friuli Venezia Giulia’s Area Plans. We will focus the attention on the comparison between the first planning phase held in the period 2004-2008 and the current process which started in the early 2012.

In doing so, we assume the participatory local welfare as a continuous learning process. Therefore, we will focus on how participation is translated in practice within different but interconnected organizational environments.

The practical enabling of the participatory experiences thus serves the aim of understanding whether participation can be considered an incremental or rather a recursive process, and which dimensions concur in shaping the trajectories of the local governance.
