A privileged relationship between Iran and Italy dates back to the age of the ancient Roman and Persian Empires. Despite their ever-changing internal affairs, the two political centers of Europe and Asia, throughout the entire ancient time, experienced long lasting contacts that produced political and military rivalries as well as economic and cultural relations of mutual interest.
The reasons inducing Italian states towards Persia were of three natures: religious, economic, and political, not to mention “those travelers who passed through (Persia) on their way to or from India or beyond” or “visited the country merely out of curiosity”.
In the footsteps of Marco polo:
Marco polo, the most famous traveller of silk road and famous Venetian world traveler, traveled overland through Persia across the Pamir mountains and south of the dangerous Taklimakan desert .He, his father and uncle left Venice in 1270 and started their travel to the east .He traveled from Acre to Sivas, Turkey, then through Mosul and Baghdad to Hormoz -that in that time was the bustling trade center of the Persian Gulf. Marco polo is the only trader who traveled the entire route of the Silk Road.
