The objectives to which Common Agricultural Policy (cap) was intended have been deeply changed in the last fifty years. Today, the debate at national and European level is amplified in relation to the need to reshape agricultural policy after 2013. The awareness of the failure of the decoupled aid as well as it was conceived, focuses on the effects that a change of this intervention tool could generate both at farm and territorial scale. This study emphasizes these issues by proposing a cognitive analysis considering and studying the financial flows within the first pillar received by each farm in Tuscany. The first objective of this research is to analyze the current situation of the decoupled aid in order to highlight potential problems at farm or territorial scale. The second objective of this proposal is to simulate different scenarios to examine the effects of regionalization of the aid. As a matter of fact, on an even programming stage it is very important to provide strategic information to the public decisionmaker who must negotiate at political phase the final choices between the various proposals.
