AIran will officially join the project Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) to introduce Iranian and Islamic arts and architecture, said the director of the Iranian and Islamic Studies Research Group at the National Library and Archives of Iran.
Ali-Mohammad Tarafdari added that joining the project will open new windows to Iranology.
The MWNF is an international non-profit project founded on the initiative of Eva Schubert in 1995 in the context of the Barcelona Process Euro-Mediterranean Partnership relaunched as the Union for the Mediterranean.
The project organizes virtual tours featuring historical monuments left from the past centuries ranging from the Islamic era to the contemporary period in order to introduce the emergence of Islamic arts and architecture, Tarafdari explained.
A total of 38 countries from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East have participated in the project, and several public and private organizations from Algeria, Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Poland, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, Palestine, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom have joined the program so far, he added.
“Within MWNF, artefacts in museums, monuments, and archaeological sites become ‘ambassadors’ of the civilizations they represent,” according to the official website of the museum.
