is a new channel for communication between city residents, the Town Council, local businesses and concessionary companies of urban services. It provides access to information on the relevant location, such as cultural heritage, leisure, municipal services, local shops, etc., using labels with QR codes with unique and customisable content, which is easily accessible from smartphones and tablets. It also offers the possibility of local citizens reporting incidents (such as a broken pavement, for example), or providing suggestions, etc. It is therefore an open communication channel which evolves over time in terms of contents and possible use.
