Loughborough University, UK
Leno Liberato Mascia was born in Italy where he attended primary and secondary schools up to the age of 19. He graduated in the U.K. taking a first degree in Chemical Technology and then a PhD. He has been awarded the degree of Doctor of Science in recognition for his sustained contribution to scientific research in the field of Polymer Science and Engineering, and has acted as Editor-Europe for the journal Advances in Polymer Technology for nearly 20 years. After graduation he worked as a Research Scientist first at I.C.I. - Plastics Division and then at Raychem - Corporate Technology, holding alternating posts in academic institutions at Aston University and at Loughborough University. He has 5 patents in his name and is the main author of well over 100 publications, having written also 3 books and contributed to chapters in 4 edited books. He has delivered lectures as an invited speaker at more than 20 international conferences. His research activities have evolved from his work in industry and have addressed aspects concerned with property enhancement of polymers through morphology management via innovative processing methods (e.g. Converging-diverging dies for solid state extrusion) or through reactive blending and interpenetrating networking (e.g. L. Mascia, Polymer Compositions, European Patent No. 84305078.2, - 1985). The latter has led to his pioneering work on Polyimide-Silica hybrids by the sol/gel method, which became known as Ceramers, with the view of bridging the temperature performance gap between aromatic polymers and ceramics. He is retired but still contributes to teaching and research for the Master Program in the Department of Materials and has also taken an interest in biodegradable elastomeric products derived from natural rubber, with view of combining his experience on reactive polymer blending with that on organic-inorganic hybrids, which would allow the possibility of introducing labile cross-links for the breakdown of the molecular structure through the action of bacteria. For his leisure, he conducts personal studies on the role of science and mathematics in the design of the artwork of Leonardo da Vinci (an aspect that has hitherto been addressed only vaguely by scholars of Renaissance).

University of Naples Federico II, Italy
Alessandra Pagliano, Architect and Ph.D. in Drawing and Survey of Built Environment, since 2016 is Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture (DIARC) of Federico II University of Naples. She teaches "Application of descriptive geometry" and "Drawing techniques". She has written extensively on the stage design and the use of perspective illusion: in this field she has produced over the last four years, numerous installations in anamorphosis, aimed at testing the effects of the direct involvement of the observer in the essential interaction with the viewer. The immersive and interactive effect of this prospective space was also applied to degraded urban environments for which contemporary art, participated and low cost, has proved an effective solution to the decades of a state of decay. She is actively involved in the study and restoration of ancient sundials and dissemination of the millennial gnomonics culture, now undergoing of dispersion. Sundials are the graphic evidence of complex astronomical events, constantly occurring on the celestial sphere, at huge distances. To set them, frequently, there was the convergence of various doctrines, from mathematics to physics, geography, cartography, from geometry to art: this multidisciplinary convergence is the evidence of a fervent cultural climate arisen in Europe between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. In this rich intellectual scenery, several sundials of great artistic and scientific value were built in Italy, in particolar in Campania, but they are not adequately appreciated due to the progressive loss of the related millenary culture of timekeeping by the Sun, erased by the advent of modern watches. Ruined by negligence but also by the inability to carry out adequate restorations, Neapolitan sundials are a precious cultural heritage to urgently be saved, providing actions for both conservation and restoration, but also for the dissemination of their ancient knowledge, that is likely to be disperse definitively, as well as rapidly, in the coming decades.

Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
Stanislav Grigoriev is senior researcher of the Institute of History and Archaeology (Ural Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences). He studied at the Chelyabinsk University, with specialization in archaeology of the Bronze Age. From 1985 to 1989 he was research fellow at the University of Chelyabinsk, and since 1989 – at the Institute of History and Archeology. During his scientific career he realized a series of projects in different fields of archaeology, but above all in studies of the Eurasian Bronze Age and archaeometalurgy. The archaeometallurgical studies were based on numerous analyses of ancient slag. He excavated also many archaeological sites: Bronze Age settlements and cemeteries and megalithic monuments. These studies demonstrated that some cultures in the area had Near Eastern origins, which resulted in studies of the Indo-European problem. This stimulated work in Iraqi Kurdistan and a small project about the Ezidian religion and its main temple of Lalish.
