Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] With reference to the title of my speech, Smart cities, between environmental emergencies and social equity, I seem to be able to affirm that Osvaldo, in the course of his university career, has dealt with issues pertaining to the relationship between man and the environment (in particular in his famous manual Fire, Water, Earth and Air: outlines of a sociology of the environment) rather than of "social equity". Nevertheless, for what little I knew of him, for his enormous humanity and his nature so attentive to the needs of the most needy, I would say that he would have appreciated a report that, in his analysis of the urban environment, also encompassed the problem of those living on the margins of society. My report today is basically some critical reflection that in recent months I have been trying to elaborate with respect to the recent and overwhelming social phenomenon of smart cities, then hinting at a couple of researches that somehow support the advanced doubts and the questions raised. In the first paragraph, therefore, I will present the European reference context with respect to the topic of smart cities; in the second I will focus on the issue of social inclusion; in the third I will refer to the issue of environmental sustainability; in the fourth I will make some concluding remarks.
