Tomà Berlanda (Venice, 1976), is an architect and scholar with extensive international academic and professional experience. As of April 2015, he is Professor of Architecture at the School of Architecture, Planning and Geomatics at the University of Cape Town, where he also held the appointment as Director (2015-2018). His research interests focus on the implications that can be drawn from a non-stereotypical reading of the African city and the practice of architecture in
non- Western urban settings and landscapes. He has co-founded asa studio and, two practices that have produced internationally recognised design work. His collaborative projects are the result of an engagement with the role of quality design for underprivileged communities, an include school buildings, early childhood development centres, and health facilities.

Klaus Armingeon is professor emeritus of comparative and European politics, University of Bern; associated researcher at the University of Zurich and guest professor at the universities of Milan and Trento. He works on topics of comparative political economy, comparative political sociology and European integration. In comparative political economy and sociology, his scholarship focuses on questions such as inequality in political participation, interest representation by trade unions, party polarization, corporatism, welfare state development, austerity, liberalization, and redistribution; in European Studies it focuses on the interaction between national welfare states and the logics and requirements of European integration. He has been increasingly concerned about the links between rationality and citizens’ political awareness, democratic politics at the elite level, and public policy. Prof. Armingeon has organized several cross-national data sets spanning long time periods, including the ‘Comparative Political Data Set’ ( and the ‘Liberalization Data Set’ (

Ente di provenienza: University
Dipartimento di destinazione: DENERG - Dipartimento Energia

Francesco Aletta is a researcher currently based in London at the UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering. He is a member of the Italian Acoustical Society (AIA) and the Secretary of the Technical Committee Noise of the European Acoustics Association (EAA). He has been active for more than 10+ years in soundscape studies, and environmental acoustics more broadly, with a particular focus on soundscape descriptors and indicators and the harmonization of protocols for gathering perceptual data on acoustic environments. He was recently appointed by the British Standards Institution as Committee Member in the WG 54 “Perceptual assessment of soundscape quality” to work on the development of the ISO 12913 series on soundscape. For this academic visit, Francesco will deliver the workshop "The soundscape approach for supportive and healthy built environments – techniques for field recordings, data collection, and design strategies" for Polito students. Furthermore, this will be used as an opportunity to strengthen the research collaboration with DENERG in soundscape studies, particularly focusing on soundscape attributes translation issues and the topic of soundscapes of historical sites.
