This article introduces the case results of a study conducted in Sirogojno, situated in a Serb region with high potentialities of agricultural and tourist development. Research has represented the occasion for problematising some of the mainstream concepts in the debate within regional studies, as "sustainable development" and resiliency. Particularly, analysis proposes to illustrate this last concept as a dimension of "territorialisation", operationalised in the study.
Keywords: Endogenous development, sustainability, resilience, territorialisation, regional studies, case study.
