A more and more smart Verona with free wifi and a new app

The project Verona Smart City, which is a collaboration between the Agsm Group and the City of Verona, has been disclosed at the end of 2016. Its goal is making Verona a smart city, that means a place where technology is at citizens and tourists disposal, and where services and information are easy to find and use. The ultimate image is the one about a new city model up with the times but strongly focused on people. 
 
The first step towards the smartness is the creation of a single, free and high-speed wifi network. The access to the network will be allowed by the Verona SmartApp, a new mobile app designed as reference point regarding city information and services.
 
The app is available for Android and IOS systems and it includes a map of the wifi coverage, a briefing about the wifi network use and also the project manifesto.
 
Verona SmartApp will be a virtual community where anyone can find what he or she needs: bus timetables and on duty pharmacies, parking information or current exhibitions and shows. Finally, two sections concerning Verona public transport and the bike sharing service will represent next steps.
 
Identifying  the areas covered by the wifi is already possible at a glance thanks to the new blue street lights, just installed for this occasion and characterized by a bright cube with written freewifi@verona, the network name.
 
 
 
Improving the citizens’ quality of life: this is the main goal of Verona Smart City and the concept of cleantech, i.e. a technology focused on serving environment and people, becomes the star and the actual model to follow.
