They join colleagues who have already been at the club, including Andrew Crofts.
The former midfielder is stepping down from his role as U21 head coach.
farms told Brightonandhovealbion.com: “I am a football freak. I look at a lot of different teams and players and as soon as I heard Roberto come in I looked at what he did and it’s ‘wow’.
“He’s received so much respect from various managers and players that it’s exciting for everyone involved that he can bring that to Brighton.”
