Introduction My ID card states it, I’m a Researcher! I have a doctoral degree in Agricultural Economics and Policy. Over time I have been involved in local development studies on local development partnerships, fishing communities, traditional food products and gastronomy tourism, investigating social structures through the use of networks (SNA). But, what lies behind a social network? What does development exactly mean? And how local development could be promoted? In looking for answers, I have engaged in field research following my instinct, meeting people and talking to them. Currently, my interests are directed towards the naturalistic inquiry approach, qualitative and visual research methods, which contain tools useful for doing research in a different way; something that goes beyond words and numbers and that, I instinctively discovered, depends on the ability to get "humanly" in touch with the others.
