The arrival and development of the so called “digital culture” reshape the urban landscape.

Integrated transports, mobility co-design and urban planning, energy requalification, electric mobility, technologies to collect of information on the territory, expansion of car sharing and bike sharing, there are some of the core features of the so called “innovative district” or “third millennium district”, that is what allows easy connections between people, promotes the creation of long term initiatives, attracts talents and capitals, encourages sharing and collaborative behaviour, always taking into account the needs of sustainability.
