Read full description of the books Chi ha paura dell'Iran?:Da Abbas Kiarostami a Marjane Satrapi, da Azar Nafisi a Shohreh Aghdashloo, da Shirin Neshat a Daryush Shayegan si raccolgono qui le voci di chi ama e vive l'Iran, per spezzare il silenzio del luogo comune e del pregiudizio con cui gli occidentali - complici i mass media - pensano all'antica Persia. Sono le storie di professionisti della parola e delle arti visive che conoscono l'Iran dall'interno per esserci nati e cresciuti, e dall'esterno perché dalla loro patria si sono allontanati, chi per scelta, chi per necessità. Una raccolta di interventi che con disincanto mettono in luce le contraddizioni e i paradossi di una "teocrazia" dipinta dagli organi di informazione nostrani come la suprema minaccia alla pace mondiale.
