Can the commons be a lever for innovation? The aim of this article is to discuss the relationship between the commons and economic, institutional and urban innovation. The article focuses on collaboration as a governance strategy to transform cities into collaborative commons and therefore co-cities. The field experiments of Bologna and Mantua are the testing ground for a polycentric approach to urban governance, a model based on collaboration among five actors, public, private, non-profit, knowledge institutions and citizens.
