IBNA- A selection of compositions by Iranian poet Sajjad Ghanavati translated into Italian under the title 'la farfalla blu' (The Blue Butterfly) has been included in 'The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Italian Poets'.
Written in 2020, these poems have been translated from Persian to Italian by Ghazal Ghorbanpour, who has previously received international awards for her works.

Earlier, classical works of Persian poetry, such as translations of Ferdowsi's Shahnameh', 'Divan of Hafez', Saadi’s books and ‘Rubáiyát of Khayyam’ had been published in Italy. This is the first time that the name of an Iranian poet is listed alongside the Italian poets and published in Italy.
