The City of Mantua is a provincial capital in Lombardy and was the Italian Capital of Culture in 2016. It is particularly attractive from a tourist point of view with about 650,000 annual visitors. Mantua is famous worldwide for the Renaissance architecture of its buildings. The City of Mantua always ranks high among those administrations which pay attention to Smart City projects and the digitization of municipal processes.


To centralize data of real estate assets owned by the managing body and all related processes.
The creation of a single database allowing for the exact knowledge of the real estate items owned by the managing body and one which supports the functions of real estate asset management and administrative reporting.

To monitor maintenance work on schools and other municipal buildings.
To innovate the management of maintenance flows from request generation to action implementation with full knowledge of costs - all using smartphone apps.

To activate a System of Land Knowledge shared between all sectors of the Municipality.
To progress from the concept of SIT (Territorial Information System) to that of a knowledge system with the possibility of uptake by all municipal departments.



To meet the needs of the client ABACO set up three separate projects, creating connections between the cadastral map database and the real estate management database.
The functions relating to cadastral, ERP, technical-administrative and fiscal management of properties were digitized, allowing the processing of reports and views through dynamic dashboards of the performance of approximately 3,000 property units owned by the Municipality.
A process of managing buildings care was implemented using a highly simplified workflow through mobile apps for school maintenance calls and supplier matching. This makes use of photographic documentation attached to the requests. The result is a more traceable and accountable tasklist meaning quicker turnaround and better feedback on suppliers.

Finally, a constantly updated system of land knowledge was created. It uses cadastral data generated when the property is subject to action carried out through the Municipalities Portal of the Revenue Agency. This takes place without any manual intervention on the part of municipal technicians. On the basis of cartography and land registry data, relations with toponymy are in place to identify territorial objects through a standard search using street name and house number. Once the database was consolidated, protocols were defined so as to be able to interface with the management software used by other municipal sectors (town planning, buildings database, local police, registry office, social services, etc.). The result: an integrated system gathering together all previous municipal subsystems.
