Abstract

In this final section we will consider the impact of digital technologies on urban spaces.On one side, this means how high tech giants and platform firms are establishing in urbanspaces as infrastructures for data accumulation and services’ development, influencingnot only urban planning but also economic and social fabric. On the other side, severalurban actors —from municipalities to dwellers— move towards entrepreneurialism oftenusing platforms and data. These processes pose new challenges to local governance interms of regulation and participation that we are going to explore in this paper.In the first paragraph, we will frame the relationship between urban spaces and digitaltechnologies referring to the concept of smart city. In the second, we will focus on aspecific subjectivity emerging in such background, the so-called urban entrepreneur. Inthe third, we will sketch challenges and potentialities for local governance in regulatingsuch phenomena.
