Smart cities, arising all around the globe, encourage the birth of new and different urban infrastructures, with interesting challenges and opportunities. Within each smart city, a smart community emerges, which integrates technological solutions for the definition of innovative models for the smart management of urban areas. In this paper, we describe the research activities conducted within a smart city project, introducing a novel framework for managing smart lighting systems within a smart community. We start by describing the proposed framework, then we specialize it to the specific use case. One of the main novelties of the proposed approach is the use of automated reasoning and sentiment analysis to boost the smart lighting process.
