Smart Villages

Contemporary philosophical- technological information has spent the last ten years using the word smart city as a panacea for the evils of every city, sometimes even as a prospect for the renewal or the renaissance of architecture. In reality, our territory and especially that of a large part of the world is dotted with very small urban units that we call villages, countries, little towns. If the post-pandemic conurbation marks a centrifugal wave, a stopping point in favor of a more widespread distribution in decentralized territories then what needs to be rethought is not only smart cities but perhaps the revamping of small countries, towns, districts in smart village, a new concept of socialization and technology for post-millennial forms of urban aggregation.

Villages, urban environments tailored to existence and above all to relationship, systems in which the proximity of the relationships compensates for the distances and alienations that follow, as well as the depressions on which young and old consume their days and years.

Villages connected with the world to remotely manage work, services, contacts: the line that connects information networks to homes, to human contexts wherever they are.

It is not just a matter of greed, connection and broadband or, as others think, satellite networks around the planet that manage to give a rebound to the internet signal. The idea is to develop and activate intelligence networks to support the technological growth of small villages.

To do all this, it is not only necessary to have technological competence or architectural competence. It is necessary to have a humanistic component grafted into a philosophical competence that puts all the existential needs and aspirations of the Human at the same system as a system integrator.

It is necessary to recreate and make human networks and territories flourish again, where the single generations have other growth prospects and a paradigm of happiness different from the one that has disappeared today in the vertical urbanizations of the great metropolises.
