Recently restyled after 10 years online, the website caters firstly for Arabic language and literature students from the many Italian universities. This space was born as an information and divulgation tool and it is also aimed at whoever intends to get introduced to the contemporary Arabic culture. We hope you could find an useful outlook on the Italian scholarship and production in modern and contemporary Arabic literature studies.
