As with many significant and historical events, the Iranian president’s visit to Italy and the Vatican City. The visit from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is a historic one; this is the first time in nearly two decades that an Iranian president has met with a Roman Catholic Pope.
According to The New York Times, the meeting was intended by the Vatican to be a dialogue on interreligious tolerance and peace, and to explore Iran’s important role of stability in the region. The meeting between the two lasted about 40 minutes. The New York Times says that the Iranian president shaking hands with Pope Francis is a tremendous step forward for Iranian-Western relations, especially riding the coat-tails of the lifted sanctions on the Middle Eastern country on Jan. 16.
The website of L’Agenzia di Viaggi Tourism Organization for instance in an article titled ‘Everyone Eager to Visit Iran’ wrote that tourism will be a major area for cooperation with Iran in the post-sanctions period for the European Union countries.
President Hassan Rouhani said on that Tehran welcomes expansion of cooperation with Italy. He said that Italy was Iran’s first trade partner among European Union states for several years and the time has come to assume the position again.

According to UNESCO, the United Nations’ cultural branch, two thirds of the world’s historical artistic heritage are in Italy.
