An organization called "Union of International Municipalities", established in Italy in 1999 and its membership is open to each town with a population of less than 50,000.

It then turned into a life-long philosophy of life, seeking serenity and tranquility in life. It then became an online association and a registered trademark.

In order for the city to become a member of this organization, certain criteria must be sought. The applications for membership of the townships are assessed by this organization by measuring the availability of these criteria. The standard availability is given certain points, and a city that gets more than 50 points according to the rating is given the membership in Cittaslow.
