Terms such as smart and resilient seem nowadays to have captured the scientific literature in different fields: from urban design and planning to technology from economy to sociology. The sustainability adjective does not help to circumscribe the question and may contribute to the vagueness of the argument. One of the possibility is represented by the process to become "smart" in a sustainable meanning, with particular attention to the ecological, as well as social and economic sense. As regards, the paper aims at presenting the Div@ter digital platform, in course of development. Div@ter is a dynamic and interactive platform for the complex-sensitive management of the qualitative data of a territory. The project is financed by POR FESR Lazio Region 2007/2013 Axis 1- Activity 1.1. The synthesis of the Market Street case study in San Francisco (CA) - interested by two considerable earhquackes, carried out using the Div@ter platform, will conclude the paper. The objective of this case study was to identify the place identity and provide for interventions able to restore the identity of Market Street as a whole and make it smart and more resilient to possible future period of crisis.
