Massimo Bray who is visiting Iran as the head of a cultural delegation talked about his country’s interest in collaboration with Iran in the field of contemporary art.
He said that collaboration between the music museums in Iran and Italy and holding programs to introduce traditional musical instruments can lead to better understanding between the two countries.
