In a joint effort to celebrate their shared cultural heritage, Iran and Azerbaijan will collaborate on a new cinematic project about the great Persian poet of the 12th century Hakim Nizami, the Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance said.

His heritage is widely appreciated in Iran as well as the Republic of Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, the Kurdistan region, and Tajikistan. March 12 has been named as Nizami Ganjavi Commemoration Day in the official Iranian calendar. In addition to Iran, Nizami’s statues can be found in Azerbaijan, China, Italy, etc.
