Piazze Telematiche - Torna all'home


Techno-scientific and cultural association


The association was set up in 1993 with a view to generating awareness among central and local authorities, entrepreneurs, associations, free-lance professionals and citizens of the need to promote the creation of networks of "Telematic Piazzas" and "Teleautomobile Centres" as indispensable public national infrastructures to foster an environmentally sound model of economic and industrial development and assist in the transition from an industrial economy to a digital and communication-based economy.

The association works through individual members (university lecturers and professionals working in fields such as town-planning, telematics, information technology, socioeconomic activities and transport) and collective members of an institutional and industrial nature to carry out interdisciplinary research and studies in the following areas:

  • urban and territorial phenomena lending themselves to involvement in the transformation of cities into wired cities where the new telematic networks (optical fiber, gsm, umts, satellite, ecc.) will make it possible to redraw the map of functional, organizational and administrative components with respect both to the traditional "centrality" of the historical city or industrial areas and to the undifferentiated fabric of the urban periphery and the departmental territories made up of small and medium-sized towns;

  • the planning required so that telematic networks can become a tool serving to restore balance between the mobility of people and the mobility of information;

  • the impact on mobility requirements and transport systems;

  • the impact on the environment and the quality of life.

The association seeks to foster the exchange of ideas and cooperation among all bodies involved in ongoing projects and activities concerned with the management of urban spaces and telematic services that can be encompassed in Pilot Schemes forming a useful point of reference for the definition of technical standards and quality requisites for the network of Telematic Piazzas and Teleautomobile Centers.
