Abstract

The present study represents a methodological example of the knowledge of the territory through the identification of the qualitative parameters that give technical information of the territory characteristics, of the environmental effects and changes due to anthropic perturbation. In this work some analysis and evaluation criteria of the environmental risk factors are presented, due to the infrastructure works, in order to supply the planning choices and to manage the execution phase, referring to great infrastructure works. In particular, this work, relating to the meaning of impact and environmental quality established by the literature, wants to present a check list for the environmental analysis, which is applied as an example to a phase of an infrastructure work and which represents an important scheme to identify, to analyse and finally to evaluate the necessary information to reach the environmental safety. Keywords: environmental analysis and evaluation, infrastructure works, environmental safety. 1 Introduction The great civil infrastructure works need specific analyses aimed to identify, evaluate and manage the environmental impacts. It is then necessary to establish which is the environmental state before the beginning of the works, in order to understand its possible evolution.
