Abstract: The Participative Territorial Planning in the State of Pará, Brazil, was designed as a guiding program to the State Government in 2007, consisting of one of the three macro-objectives of government action. The program was associated with the idea of creating spaces for participation and regional integration, aimed at preparing the Plano Plurianual 2008-2011 (2008-2011 Multi-Year Plan - PPA) in a democratic and participatory way, by including municipal and regional demands decided along with a gradual popular participation that would culminate with the establishment of regional and state councils as a means of participation and social control, with 3.983 elected counselors. These counselors represented different social segments and groups, among which it would be interesting to highlight those involved with the agricultural/rural industry (such as farmers, agroextractivists, apiculturists, peasants, rural extensionists, agricultural producers, land workers, cattle breeders, fishermen, small, medium and large farmers and rural trade unionists), and were equally distributed among 12 regions of the State. Based on the fact that a considerable amount of the counselors were linked to the rural world, the aim of this paper is to analyze the rural identity of these members and how the rural-urban dichotomy was expressed in the process of thinking about the State and about regional integration. We will work with the profiles of the counselors; with the demands presented in the AssembleiasPú blicasMunicipais (Municipal Public Meetings - APMs), as recorded in the minutes; as well as with the profile of the demands that were chosen and integrated into the PPA 2008-2011 and with the Annual Budgetary Laws of the years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, as systematized by the PTP team and by the SEPOF. We intend to discuss the public funding destined to the "rural areas of the State of Pará" and the symbolism of what it means to live in the countryside.
