Energy aspects and environmental problems have a key role in the definition of building’s design, management and maintenance. The energy saving and the decrease of environmental impact throughout the life cycle assessment of buildings maintaining an high level of comfort are Key points for a modern and sustainable construction (total quality of the building). In fact, the building’s design has to be considered the result of a multi-objective problem. Furthermore the European Directive 2002/91/EC issues the sustainable themes on the energy performance of buildings , and include the energy certification of new buildings with effect from 2006
