The concept of Smart City (SC) has been introduced to categorize the vast area of activities to enhance the life quality of citizen, which are characterised by a pervasive use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), to help cities, with various urban domains, making better use of their resources. Monitoring the structural behaviour of strategic buildings and monuments may be desirable for citizens, which have recently experienced a destructive earthquake in their own town, such as the case of L'Aquila. The paper deals with the design of a distributed structural monitoring network for a selected set of strategic structures belonging to the city of L'Aquila. Preliminary design criteria are discussed on the basis of previous authors' experiences in this context. Specific attention has been dedicated to analyse the expected acceleration response measurements induced by small seismic excitations for the general purpose of monitoring.
