The objective of the Italian National Strategy for Inner Areas (SNAI) is to reverse the negative demographic dynamics which structurally affects the peripheral territories and which recent development policies, promoting the concentration of investments in urban agglomerations, have aggravated. The paper proposes national and regional scenarios of population evolution, based on two different estimation methods, in order to highlight the peculiarities of the different areas, but also to underline how their future is necessary linked to a more open
