Blockchain as a new model of public-private partnerships towards sustainability

The financing of public works closely affects administrations and citizens, the latter both as users and as taxpayers.

In this perspective, the paper analyses the city as an innovation laboratory at the service of citizens, where virtuous solutions can be experimented and implemented while maintaining a close connection with the population.
