The concept of urban sustainability and liveability closely depends on multi-level approaches to environmental issues. The ultimate goal in the field of noise management is to involve citizens and facilitate their participation in urban environmental decisions. The SENSEable Pisa project, based on the concept of Real-Time City and Smart City, presents an acoustic urban monitoring system based on a low-cost data acquisition method for a pervasive outdoor noise measurement. The system is based on the use of noise sensors located on private houses in the centre of Pisa, which provide a good model for the current acoustic climate of Mediterranean city centres. In this study, SENSEable acquisitions show a strong anthropogenic component not revealed by public strategic maps. The anthropogenic component, commonly known as movida, becomes increasingly critical in Mediterranean cities, therefore, it is necessary to explore methods highlighting this new source and to adopt strategies for the creation of reliable noise pollution maps.
