Despite the economic crisis still heavily affecting most of Europe, a possible resumption can be found in the revitalization of public and private investments. These investments should be directed not only towards the strategic areas of infrastructures and production, but also to thosewhich allow for a higher level of the quality of life (sports facilities, parks, etc.). In such cases, the need to balance the reasons of ﬁnancial sustainability with environmental and social proﬁles is even moreevident. Thus, multicriteria techniques, supporting complex assessments, should be implemented together with a monetary feasibility study (cost-beneﬁt analysis). Multidimensional methods allow for the aggregation of different proﬁles into overall indicators. This study gives an account ofhow the application and comparison of multi-criteria approaches based on tools characterized by a higher or lower level of compensation between criteria can broaden the spectrum of analysis of the problems and lead to a more subtle logic of funding for public works and works of public utility,with a more current and mature sharing of proﬁtability between private investors and users of community infrastructures.
