Millennium after Shahnameh's Composition

Registering  the ceremony for the first Millennium after Shahnameh's composition in the list of UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List has long been followed in the country's cultural and research circles. This ceremony is an occasion that was proposed by the Ferdowsi Foundation to be celebrated on its 1,000th anniversary of composition. 
Shahnameh, an epic masterpiece of Persian language, is the work of Hakim Abolqasem Ferdowsi, one of the world's greatest poets. The Shahnameh is a description of the Iranian conquests, victories, defeats and failures from the earliest times to the overthrow of the Sassanid dynasty.
