Evaluation is one of the central elements of any health promotion intervention and one of its objectives is learning. Usually the outcome of the intervention is assessed on the target groups, while the impact of the process on other actors, such as professionals, is rarely taken into account. This contribution illustrates some phases of the evaluation process carried out with a team of professional educators who designed and implemented a health promotion pro-ject in 4 Piedmont municipalities. The analysis of the logbooks filled in by the professional educators, and the focus groups carried out with this team and the local administrators, con-firmed that the thinking about the action fosters the learning of the professionals. It is therefore necessary to make explicit the consolidated learning, often left under-track.
