Over nine hundred citizens in Piazza Duomo to activate their SPID (Public Digital Identity System) IDs

The third edition of Trento Smart City, the event that saw the Trentino innovation system as the protagonist, closed yesterday, Sunday, September 22. It was an 8-day event of initiatives, round table discussions, workshops, presentations and conferences to understand, explain and experience what it means to be “Citizens in the digital age”.
Among the strengths of the event is the possibility for citizens to obtain their SPID (Public Digital Identity System) ID. In 3 days, 920 citizens activated their personal credentials to access digital services. The digital identity tool, valid in Italy but also in all European countries, allows users to communicate easily and securely with the entire Public Administration, without having to go to the offices in person.
You can see all the numbers of the event below.

At the TrentinoSalute4.0 and Apss stands, 423 citizens installed the TreC_FSE App and over 50 the Salute+ App. In the Apss stand, more than 100 people were able to “virtually” visit the Proton Therapy Center thanks to ProtonVR viewers and virtual reality. Seats for the “real” visits to the Center in via al Desert were sold out: 60 people were able to discover, guided by the Center’s doctors and technicians, the highly specialized structure for the treatment of tumors.

The days dedicated to the event were 8, the sections were 3: Digital Protagonists, #Fuoripiazza, Digital Village in which digital cafés and happy hours, Demos, Workshops, Presentations and Digital School were offered.

There were over 140 events, 180 speakers involved, 4 rooms for talks, 6 exhibition stands at the Digital Village in Piazza Duomo set up by the Municipality of Trento, the Autonomous Province of Trento, the Trento Province Healthcare System, Trentino Salute, and Trentino Network, Fondazione Bruno Kessler, by the University of Trento, by the Consortium of Trentino Municipalities, by MUSE which saw about 16,000 visitors assisted by over 200 volunteers and employees of the Bodies who took turns at the Digital Village.

7 were the Digital Protagonists who talked at Palazzo Geremia. Starting from their personal and professional experience, they shared new positive points of view to help us better enjoy the reality in which we are immersed. We talked about cyberbullying with Paolo Picchio, the digitalization of the Public Administration with Luca Attias and Gianni Dominici, the importance of digital education with Alfonso Fuggetta, the digitalization of information with Paolo Borrometi, the digital rights and duties of citizens with Ernesto Belisario and the job opportunities that digital technologies offer with Anna Marino.

20 were the Fuoripiazza events with activities that took place outside the Piazza Duomo digital village.

Solid lines for the whole 3 days at the SPID stand to obtain and test the Public Digital Identity System. 920 citizens activated their credentials to communicate easily and securely with the entire Public Administration.
During activation, Province administration staff illustrated to citizens how the entire system works, showing, in real time, how to access services and also using the demo station to explain to groups of citizens how to navigate the www.servizionline.trentino.it portal   and learn about and use the services available.

The role of the Public Administration in the digital transformation and the services it offers were the focus of the stand set up by the Autonomous Province of Trento in the Piazza Duomo Digital Village. In particular, some projects were presented that in recent years have been carried out by 13 local organizations, specifically: the Simplification and Digitization Strategic Mission Unit, the Personnel Organization and General Affairs Department, the Public Transport Service, the Mountain Basins Service, the Environmental Authorization and Assessment Service, the Urban Planning and Landscape Protection Service, the Authorization and Assessment Service, the Risk Prevention Service, the Vocational Training, Higher Education and System Functions Service, the Crafts, Commerce, Promotion, Sports and Tourism Department, the Department for health and social policies and the Provincial Agency for family, births and youth policies. The ICT and Digital Transformation Service, in addition to organizing the stand, illustrated the online services and presented the future home page of the institutional portal for public opinion.

At the Municipality of Trento stand, more than 200 people tried the online help desk sportello.comune.trento.it, by authenticating with the new SPID identity on the Smart Points available, filling out the form and opening an online application.

Students were also protagonists of Trento Smart City Week: 50 youths were involved in the organization through school-to-work program experiences and 5 trainees from the University of Trento. Activities for the little ones were not missing: the “Baby Village” offered creative and entertainment workshops in English on Smart City related topics offered by Pingu’s English Trento to children aged 3 to 12.
