Transforming Milan in a smart city is a strategic objective and political priority of the Municipality, which has taken up a variety of projects and experiments with the aim to transform the main suburbs of the city in smart areas. This paper presents Milan’s demonstration of a smart district allowed by the EU funded project “Sharing Cities”, aimed at creating a "smart" district with "near-zero" emissions in three different “lighthouse” cities, London, Lisbon, and Milan. The paper describes the first outcomes of such project in Milan, obtained through a variety of tools and actions based on a People, place and platform approach, aimed at involving the different stakeholders and applying solutions to foster innovation processes instrumental to the implementation of a smart city urban agenda.
