  • Probably no country in the world is more mischaracterized in Western eyes than Iran. Most Americans' perceptions of Iran are limited to images they see on news channels and when most of what people know about another country comes from the news, and that news is all about diplomatic showdowns, nuclear brinkmanship and "axis of evil" labels, it's easy to forget that behind all of the politics, ordinary folks are living their ordinary lives not all that different from any small town in the US of A.

  • 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”.
