The experience of Castel del Giudice illustrated in this paper, highlighting some features related to the neo-endogenous rural development paradigm, shows that the success of the initiatives experienced by the small village of Molise Region would be due to an (casual) overcoming of constraints that the endogenous paradigm poses in rural areas characterized by the hard depopulation. The case study, in point of fact, highlights how the action propulsive of local communities on local resources, without the contribution of additional external resources, results lacking compared with the objectives, as to its activation remains subordinate to the strategic abilities of local governments. In conclusion, the deepening of the conditions that generated the success of the case has proved a great opportunity to get information on normative addresses, in order to develop more effective approaches to the development of Italian internal rural areas, as those localized in Central and Southern Appennini.
