Bologna University to hold conference on Sadi
The two-day event titled 'Literary Cultures and Traditions in Comparison: From the Beginning to Sa'di and Petrarch Eras' will be supported by Iranian Book City Institute's Cultural Center, the Shiraz-based Center for Studies on Sa'di and the University of Bologna, ifilmtv.ir reported.

Renowned scholars are scheduled to deliver speeches and hold discussions on affinities between the two poets.

One of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature, Sheikh Muslih ud-Din Sadi Shirazi is famous worldwide for his Bustan (The Orchard) and Gulestan (The Rose Garden).

Petrarch was born as Francesco Petrarca in Arezzo, Tuscany. He was a devoted classical scholar who is considered the 'Father of Humanism', a philosophy that helped spark the Renaissance. Petrarch's writing includes the well-known odes to Laura.
