During a recent joint research period, applying Forester’s method for creating "profiles of practitioners" and gathering "practice stories" in the Italian context, the authors explored the work of thirty Italian practitioners. They have come to call this research work no longer just "doing interviews" but more specifically "investigations into practices of creating change". By exploring not "espoused theories" but "theories-in-use", the authors have tried to close the epistemological and political gap between pragmatism and critical theory in the direction of a "critical pragmatism". Moreover, by considering the direct voices of these Italian practitioners, authors find relevant and pressing to discuss research outcomes in this journal where challenges about planning perspectives and the overcome of deliberative democracy are under discussion
