The phenomenon of Smart Cities finds an important conceptual parallel with the idea of the “perfect
city” that characterized the imagination, art and philosophy of the European Renaissance. This similarity can
help to identify some key points that are essential to understand the Smart Cities from a legal point of view. In

in order to “give them back to citizens” as privileged objects of the city government.
