PhD at School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University, UK

Federico Bellentani’s research interests range from semiotics, cultural geography, planning theory and national landscape imagery. His research aims to sketch out an innovative approach to investigate the ways in which urban space conveys meanings and how these are interpreted by different audiences. Federico has developed this approach through an examination of the post-

Soviet city, with a focus on Estonia, where he conducted fieldwork in 2015-2016.

In 2020, his research results will be published in his first book edited by De Gruyter Mouton: The Meanings of the Built Environment. A semiotic and geographical approach to monuments in the post-Soviet era. His findings were also published in peer-review journals in the field of semiotics and architecture. Federico discussed his research in international conferences on semiotics, geography and planning theory. Among these, he was invited to give a lecture on how to deal with controversial monuments in the context of an international program which brought together influential scholars and the President of Estonia.

Federico received his PhD from School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University, UK (2017). 

He holds a master’s degree in semiotics (2013) and a bachelor’s degree in communication sciences (2010) from University of Bologna, Italy.
