Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The current crisis situation can constitute a moment of reflection about the models constantly pursued and offer a starting point for a revival of the society itself, assigning it a new, more human and sustainable face. It is therefore possible to speak not of crisis but of challenges, and it is precisely in facing these "societal challenges" that the evolution of our cities in smart cities can play a fundamental role. A smart city is characterized by technological innovation and environmental sustainability but also by a high level of social inclusion. Inclusion means avoiding all forms of discrimination and valuing differences, for example recognizing the talent of women and allowing them to express themselves. Providing administrators with a picture, unilaterally recognized, of the quality of life in their cities, through the women's magnifying glass, will allow the preparation of a plan of recommendations for the promotion of an intervention action and create a necessary basis for designing co-design processes worthy of an intelligent and increasingly inclusive city.
