(AGI) Rome, Jul 11 - (by Barbara Tebaldi) Two women engaged in a new dialogue to add more substance to the relations between Italy and Iran and overcome what is left of their mutual biases. "ITaly and Iran. A cooperation model" on Wednesday. will be hosted at the Italian Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday. "Italy and Iran. A cooperation model" is a conference organised by Daniela Sbrollini, the newly-elected president of the Italy-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group, which will enjoy the participation of Faezeh Hashemi Rafsanjani, daughter of former Iranian President Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and President of Charity Foundation for Special Diseases (CSFFD). The event will takes place at the Italian Chamber of Deputies on Wednseday. "Women often think of new kinds of projects, which help promote dialogue," Daniela Sbrolllini told AGI, "and we want to start from issues concerning society, welfare, and health." The Italy-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group, now headed by Daniela Brollini, an MP from the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), has entered in a new phase following the lifting of sanctions and the starting of a new chapter in the relations between the two countries, as symbolised by the visits of Iran's President Rohani to Rome and of Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi to Tehran. "We are determined to focus on society, culture and cooperation, starting from welfare, with a view to lay the groundwork for a new dialogue," the newly-elected group's leader stated after pointing out that congressmen and senators from all Italian parties have joined the association. The Italy-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group is committed to working on social issues, focusing on mutual understanding, "to create a real synergy and do away with fences and biases towards a country we still know little about, but where cultural and economic relations can improve." "This is a country with an extraordinary culture, which has chosen us to be one of its ideal partners," Ms Sbrollini explained, "and this allows us to understand how other countries are acting to promote innovation, technology and projects." A message favouring dialogue was heeded by parlamentarians from all Italian political parties who joined the association. One hundred and five representatives of associations, companies, universities and research institutions have already filed for their registration at the conference. The purpose of the event, President Sbrollini underlined, "is to establish relations with a world we know little - a very beautiful Islamic country that is still suffering from some biases. There is still much to be done as regards civil rights. However, cooperation can help and by starting with two women, we can then think of new models of society.". .
