Abstract: The paper considers the decision problem related to the reuse of an abandoned railway for the creation of a new infrastructure in the Monferrato Region (Northern Italy). The project represents an important opportunity for the economic survival of the area, contributing to valorise local resources and to promote cultural values. With the aim of addressing the design of the reuse plan, a multi-criteria evaluation based on the PROMETHEE method has been developed for the selection of the best functions to be considered for the various station buildings along the line. The assessment was supported by an experts' panel that contributed to define the decision scenarios and to identify the importance of the evaluation criteria.
