Abstract

Nowadays the governance of an urban context has a central priority given the increasing level of complexity of it, and the criticality rises when the city decide to start a smartization process. Indeed, the success of a smart city is strictly linked to choices on its governance but despite this the studies on the theme is still lacking. The principal aim of present work is analyse how the element of city governance is considered in literature, with a particular focus on innovative smart context. For this purpose we have conducted a bibliometric analysis on “governance” and “city (ies)”, and “governance” and “smart city (ies)”. In summary, the results from our investigations show that even though there is a gap in the literature on smart city governance, some elements derived from the analysis conducted can be well attributed also to the smart city.
