The project was realized based on the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated December 23, 2011 “On Holding 870th Jubilee of Great Azerbaijani poet and thinker Nizami Ganjavi”, within the framework of the series of events devoted to the writer’s jubilee.


On April 20, 2012, First Lady of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva and head of the international department of the Rome City Municipality Serena Forni attended the inauguration.


Authors of the monument are People’s Artist Salkhab Mammadov and Honoured Artist Ali Ibadullayev. The project was approved by Rome City Municipality’s history and art commission.
