The interaction of assessment and planning can be an effective tool for defining design strategies that implement sustainable development principles. In this case study of the town of Buccino, in the Province of Salerno, in Southern Italy, an integrated decision-making process focusing on the cultural and landscape potential that associates Buccino with the Roman town of Volcei was used to determine a scenario for sustainable development. The study’s main goal was to understand how multi-criteria and multi-group assessment can interact with design and development to become both valid supports for the decision-making process as well as continuous assessment tools that can play a key role in conscious and shared design choices.
