Workshop Transport Planning: from Theory to Practice – Second Edition

We have come to the end of the second Workshop “Transport Planning: From Theory to Practice” organised by MIC-HUB and the Foundation Mobilità in città at Politecnico di Milano.


It was a pleasure working with such amazing professionals and bright students to understand how unequal distribution of mobility capabilities can exacerbate social exclusion and systemic inequalities.


We involved the students in a “Learn by doing” exercise.

They carried out an intensive on-site exploration of the Corvetto area of Milan to understand the real challenges and needs of the local community in that area and to gain an in-depth knowledge of its physical characteristics.

The students’ research activities contributed to planning and designing better solutions for the area.



The workshop was organized with the contribution of many valuable instructors and guest speakers:

Isabella Inti, CEO of Temporiuso and co-director of M-US-T Master Temporary Uses at Politecnico di Milano;

Giulia Cantaluppi and Francesca Tridello, architects at Temporiuso;

Aubrey Toldi, Ph.D. in Urban Planning, Design, & Policy at Politecnico di Milano;

Diego Schettino, activist;

Gaia Sgaramella, head of mobilità in città foundation;

Elisa Privitera, postdoctorate researcher at the University of Toronto;

Fabio Manfredini, director of MAUD (Mapping and Urban Data Lab) of the DAStU – Politecnico di Milano;

Piùlento, spin-off of Politecnico di Milano;

Nadia Giuffrida, DicaTech, Politecnico di Bari.


We would like to thank Charles T. Brown, author of the podcast Arrested Mobility and CEO of Equitable Cities, for his stimulating talk about the importance of racial equity in transportation.


We would also like to thank all our Project Leader, Directors, Senior Consultants and Consultants who gave lectures: Mirko Franzoi, Simone Fabbiano, Marco Petronio, Giuseppe Capone Caputo, Kathrin Pinter and Daniel Gorokhov.


Congratulation to all our students for the commitment and their transformative ideas!

Workshop promotors: Federico Parolotto and Delia Valastro (MIC-HUB), Gaia Sgaramella (Mobilità in città Foundation), Prof. Andrea Arcidiacono, Prof. Carolina Pacchi and Dir. Massimo Bricocoli (DAStU - Politecnico di Milano).
