So, if you are wondering about things to do in Florence, here you have the answer.

Florence Design Week renews its Formats and creates new international routes, with the goal of creating an edition smart, in a virtuoso dialogue between cities that combine creativity, business, innovation, tradition and design the life of all.

They think of the city as a culture, architecture, landscape and infrastructure; but also as a place of service, local products, communities, places of imagination, the cradle of talents, rituals and traditions and human values.
Where creativity is inspired, the design turns it into reality in the service of residents, tourists and professionals.

See two examples below of smart and creative cities:

MONTREAL: CITY OF THE SUPER COOL

Montreal’s low cost of housing, liberal attitudes, preservation of history, and innovative artistic culture, has made it a hub for creative minds (bohemians, gays, artists, high-tech workers and other non-conformists), who will lead the creative economy to knock at its doors.

Would you suspect that a city’s subculture of artists, geeks, gays, and rockers are key indicators of local economic development potential? Or would you put your money on measures of corporate relocations and industrial infrastructure development?

And the answer is…

“Cities and regions that attract lots of creative talent are also those with greater diversity and higher levels of quality of place.” (Richard Florida, Rise of the Creative Class) “Societies and institutions that cherish stability and eschew change are at a disadvantage in economic competition.” (Joe Cortright, The Economics of Being Different)
