Milan has a fabulous collection of Safavid carpets.
Robert Marin, currently in England, hails from the Università Ca’ Foscari of Venice.
Roberta is well known to the Iran Society and to the Oriental Rug & Textile Society, having lectured to us before. She took an MA in Art and Archaeology with a focus on Islamic Art and Architecture at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). Following her MA, she worked at the Asian Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, collaborated with the Khalili Collection of Islamic Art, and taught at various public institutions, such as Birkbeck College, the London College of Communication, SOAS, Asia House and the University of York.
Due to the lecturer’s indisposition this lecture is postponed for a future occasion.
