In the last decade a relevant expansion of traffic by sea occurred, not only on the long distances, but
also on the middle-short distances; on coastline urban areas and particularly on neighboring urban areas,
but separated by the sea, the increase of the flows often involves greater risks of accident for the
navigation (Lewison, 1978; Merrick et al., 2001; van Dorp et al., 2001). The risk of maritime accident
results particularly high for the ro-ro ships. This papers clarify some aspects concerning the concept of
risk and safety at sea dealing with some literature models. An application is proposed to the Messina
Strait context that is the crossroad of elevated flows of traffic along two directions. The navigation safety
in the Messina Strait has been analyzed with the support of a micro-simulation approach.
