The concept of smart city is an increasingly evident reality in societies around the world by implementing the latest technologies to sustainably improve the quality of life of citizens and foster economic growth. A good definition of the concept could be the following: «A self-sufficient city of productive neighbors at a human speed, within a metropolitan area, hyperconnected with emissions transfers. »
