Italy’s Embassy in Azerbaijan will organize an interesting exhibition for the first time in Baku, Italian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Augusto Massari told APA.


He said that with the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s support, Shah Ismail and his son's original portraits will be brought from the Uffizi Gallery of Florence and exhibited in Azerbaijan.


 "Taking into account Shah Ismail’s role for Azerbaijan, Italy considers that this event will be highly appreciated and will be symbolic as Italy is Azerbaijan’s friend,” the envoy said.


No date has yet been fixed for the exhibition, Massari noted.


“Negotiations have started. The exhibition will likely take place this October," he added.
