This paper describes the preparation and the execution of an educational experience consisting of a challenge, called Hackmytown, among five different teams composed by university students, aimed at experiencing challenges in the definition of "smart" services for a city. Glurns/Glorenza, the smallest city of South Tirol (Italy), was chosen as the ideal location to verify the application of the concept of Smart City in a small community by adopting a bottom-up approach involving local stakeholders and Municipality.
