This historic and vibrant city of Rome used the smarticipate project to expand participatory processes for urban regeneration, with a particular focus on community gardens. The Italian capital wishes to use open data to establish a transparent base for decision-making.

For more information on smarticipate in Rome, visit the Resources page.

The Urban Stories below provide examples of how the smarticipate platform can be applied. While the stories themselves are based on the real capabilities of the platform, the characters in the Urban Stories are fictitious. They serve to display the type of common issues that citizens, public authorities and businesses have in urban areas, and how smarticipate can be used to help them tackle these issues.
