The objective of this contribution is to define and analyze the smart city concept, in light of the technological evolutions that contemporary cities gradually incorporate and according to the main theoretical contributions in the sociological field. The impact of digital technologies is progressively transforming our interactions in several contexts, not least the city as a place of production and consumption. We live more and more hybrid, physical and digital context in which paths of meaning are derived from the coexistence of the two spaces. Today’s reality is enriched with opportunities offered by the digital world (and vice versa) in the directions of the so called augmented reality and the brick and click.
