Our contribution deals with social marginality in the context of socio-economic changes. The two projects here presented are both focused on the interaction among members of the community (citizens, institutions, public and private societies) and aim at promoting health by building up a team-work. The theoretical-methodological basis of both projects is the Dialogical Science and, in particular, the branch dealing with the "Generative Architecture of Services". The project "Social Marginalities", funded by the municipality of Padua, acts through the promotion of management abilities and active roles by the citizens (versus a passive delegation to social and health services in case of emergencies). On the contrary, the project "inOltre, the health of the entrepreneur", realized by Veneto Region, is primarily addressed to the institutions: the main aims of this project is to promote the creation of networks between services, thus offering a synergic and interlinked support to the users who, in turn, are not passive recipients but can become active protagonists of a team-work aiming at common targets. Our contribution goes on with a critical analysis of the mainadvantages and drawbacks of the two projects and, eventually, it lets to an overall and detailed comment on how to plan and implement interventions addressing specific needs of the Community, thus maximizing their effectiveness and efficiency.
