Among the various forms of social innovation, the regeneration of the communities’ assets by social enterprises is actually playing an increasing role. The renovation of buildings and public spaces to be allocated to social services, cultural activities, protected shelters, and social tourism is a challenge both in terms of management and legitimacy of these enterprises with high "social impact." The paper is intended to deepen both aspects, analyzing the main critical features in the regeneration processes and highlighting the convergence between scientific definitions of social enterprise and public policies.
