This paper presents the results of the studies undertaken to assess the geotechnical parameters of the Torino subsoil (Italy). The ground conditions are characterized by a sand and gravel deposit, ranging from medium to highly dense, down to a depth of 8 to 10 m, and cemented soil (in cases a conglomerate), due to calcareous deposition processes, below this depth. The random distribution of cementation in the ground is a key factor in design and construction of underground works. To assess the ground properties as a function of the cementation degree, continuum and discontinuum numerical modelling were used. These were closely linked to the results of the characterization studies carried out so far in the laboratory and in the field (monitored drilling, SPT, large diameter pits, plate loading tests).
