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
