Smartness and sustainability are undoubtedly closely intertwined issues gaining growing attention from both practitioners and policy makers. Sustainability assessment is a major challenge due to the many multidisciplinary aspects involved, of course this makes the evaluation process complex thus hindering the effectiveness of available monitoring tools. We introduce a new methodological approach to account for the inherent uncertainty and vagueness of the involved variables by modelling a fuzzy-logic-based framework. Our approach has been tested on Italy at a provincial scale and compared with two others sustainability indexes. A correlation analysis has also been performed to assess the relationship between our ranking results and the attained quality of life scores. Our approach, differently from the traditional ones, ensures a high level of versatility that makes its use possible jointly with (or alternatively to) other existing methodologies promoted by international institutions.
