On Wednesday, November 29, the Sapienza Faculty of Architecture will host the presentation of the volume entitled "Attraverso l'Iran. Città, architetture, paesaggi" (Across Iran: Cities, Architecture, Landscapes) by Alessandra De Cesaris, Giorgio Di Giorgio and Laura Valeria Ferretti (Manfredi editions, 2017).

The book, which presents the authors’ research, studies and travel in Iran as part of bilateral university agreements, was conceived with the desire to organize the historical memories, news about cities and buildings, landscape descriptions, and the impressions of those who visited Iran in the past, gathering all the iconographic and descriptive materials into a single volume.

The event will be introduced by Bruno Botta, Deputy Rector for International Relations, Akbar Gholi, Cultural Officer of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Rome, and Luca Ribichini, Deputy President of the Faculty of Architecture, while Roberto Cherubini, International Relations Delegate for the Department of Architecture and Design, will coordinate the meeting.

Lectures will be held by Mario Casari, Professor at the Sapienza Italian Institute of Oriental Studies, Fiammetta Cucurnia, journalist at "La Repubblica" and Susanna Pasquali, Professor of History, Representation and Restoration at the Department of Architecture.

The authors and the publisher will be present.
