Smart City : « fiction » ou innovation stratégique ?

Abstract : This special issue of Quaderni on the smart city (ville intelligente) lies at the intersection of different social science approaches. It questions the buzzword smart city not only used by engineers of the digital revolution but also by political officials, planners and researchers. It tries to answer the following interrogation: Does the smart city belong to a “fiction” storytelling (e-democracy beyond e-government) used for a technical innovation – which is actually limited to the optimization of urban services – offered by private firms? Or does it stand up as a major innovation enabling the fluidity of the city involved in a process of spatial, social and economic reconfigurations linked to globalization and the digital revolution?
