A Thousand and one Stories

Three days of seminars, music and readings on the occasion of the exhibition Unedited History. Iran 1960 – 2014

Architecture, poetry and literature
from contemporary Iran

From Forugh Farrokhzad, the “voice” of Iranian poetry who has embodied the unease of an era of transformation through absolutely non-conformist personal and artistic choices, to the pages of a literature that allows us to comprehend the evolution of the Iranian society of today with more immediacy than any socio-political analysis and through to a view of the unchanging element of the landscape and the spirit of the Iranian plateau: the Islamic garden.
