The paper analyses the evolution of agricultural diversification activities in Italy by comparing data from national and European statistical sources. From this exercise critical aspects emerge in the classifications currently in use, at both National and, more in particular, at European levels. Results of the analysis show how the EU categorization isn’t suitable for describing the wide process of diversification ongoing in European agriculture and ensuring a homogeneous comparison across Member States. Finally, it formulates recommendations to fill data gaps and to improve the quality of data in the framework of the future revision of European agricultural statistics and the common agricultural policy post 2020.
