This article investigates some rural welfare practices in the Sardinia region, afflicted by depopulation, economic crisis and reduction of public and social services, exploring the results of a qualitative research on some case studies. Key aspects of these experiences include (i) the centrality of multifunctional farms within nested markets; (ii) the role of social innovators who become hubs for networks; (iii) the ability of local institutions to operate as institutional entrepreneurs.

Keywords: Rural welfare, social innovators, institutional entrepreneurs, multifunctionality in agriculture, rural regions, nested markets
