Abstract

The seismic risk reduction of important community buildings and critical facilities is
one of the most delicate problems that administrators are being asked to tackle. The
ASSESS project, aimed at assessing the seismic risk of school buildings in the Friuli
Venezia Giulia region (NE of Italy), is a prototypal study, developed on sound technical
and scientific bases, and useful for defining decision-making tools for preventive
purposes. In particular, the ASSESS methodology identifies the possible actions for
improving seismic safety, it makes an economic evaluation of these actions, and,
moreover, defines through specific indicators the intervention priorities for reducing
the seismic risk of school buildings throughout the studied area.
