Roma One, Rome (Italy) - mercoledì 31 gennaio 2007 - di Egilde Verì
"Nima" is a bookshop specializing in Oriental texts: here, in via Circonvallazione Nomentana, nearby the Tiburtina railway station, an Iranian architect opened -14 years ago- a bookshop that brings in Rome a tiny patch of Persia.
What kind of books can be found on the shelves? There are titles in Arab, Persian, Turk, Albanian: books of poetry, novels, religious books, and many others, both in their original language as well as translated into Italian.
There is also an "ancient novelty": the "Mathnawi", the Italian translation of the complete work of the great Sufi master Gialalu'd-Din Rumi [d.1273 A.D.].
At "Nima" can be found also giants of Italian literature such as Calvino, Pirandello and Dario Fo, translated into Persian. And, of course, the entire work of Dante [d. 1321 A.D.] if you want to hear how does it sound in Persian "Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita"...
