Planet – Smart Square

Turin, Italy

Enerbrain for the first Smart Square in Italy

From the collaboration between Enerbrain and Planet Idea was born the first Smart Square in Italy!

From July 2016 to March 2017 in the Campidoglio district of Turin, Piazza Risorgimento became Planet Smart Square, as part of the Living Lab of Turin: a project promoted by the City of Turin in collaboration with the Fondazione Torino Smart City and District IV.

 

The project

5200 square meters and 25 innovations designed to improve the quality of and access to services for local residents, thus promoting new opportunities for socializing.

From free wifi to urban gardens, gym equipment, security cameras and smart lighting, the innovations introduced have transformed the square into a welcoming, accessible and safe place every hour.

Retraining has also encouraged the aggregation of spontaneous communities, thus helping to strengthen links between citizens.
