An extensive application of seismic microzoning studies requires the definition of specific proxies to allow local practitioners to quantify litho-stratigraphical amplification phenomena on the basis of procedures simple enough to allow a widespread application. To be effective, these tools should be specialized to the litho-stratigraphical configurations representative of the study area. A procedure is here described for providing such a tool on the basis of extensive numerical simulations taking advantage of geological/geotechnical information made available by regional/national Authorities. This procedure is quite general and could be applied in several contexts and, in particular, in developing countries low seismicity areas or where extensive accelerometric databases are lacking. As an example, an application of the above procedure developed on behalf of the Tuscany Regional Administration (in Central Italy) is presented.
