A Smart City on a Human Scale
Designing the city: beautiful, intelligent, and sustainable
Smart cities are the way of the future, with the integration of knowledge, infrastructure, and the technologically advanced machines of a communication and information society. Cities designed to achieve sustainable growth and to improve the quality of life. From mobility to energy efficiency, telecommunications and security, and to quality of the environment and of life. Participants will start by examining the case of Milan, which leads the way as the "smartest" city in Italy, and they will learn that every aspect of urban life can be interpreted in a way that is "smart". Acting as mobility managers, the students will organise themselves into groups and take inspiration from the innovations introduced by Pirelli in the field of sustainability, using documents from the Historical Archive to design a new mobility system that will contribute to the development of the city.
