In the last decades the integration of social and health care has been the focus of several researches and of the development of a normative regulation, produced both at nationally and regionally level. Each regional government, especially after the reform of Title V of the Constitution made in 2001, have developed different ways and tools to pursue the integration along the three different levels: institutional, managerial and professional. The evaluation of the territorial integration processes between social areas, managed by local authorities, and health areas, managed by local health authorities, therefore arouses particular interest, despite - or perhaps because of - the complexity of these policies. This paper analyzes, from an evaluative perspective, the realization of social-health integration in Lazio, as it has been perceived by some of the main actors (persons in charge for integration at district level and social workers). The research has adopted quantitative and qualitative tools, trying to integrate them, in order to identify, among the collected information, the evaluation evidences of the study.
