    The dream of Dr. Sabahi, Master of carpets: May my collection remain in Turin, lets open a museum
    
    Taher Sabahi, a merchant and collector of carpets, would like his priceless collection of 1,800 pieces to remain in Turin, to make it a museum. The risk, however, is that a unique cultural heritage may leave the city forever
    Iranian carpet seller
    
    Master Taher Sabahi, born in Iran and Turin for 59 years, has a dream Taher Sabahi, an Iranian merchant who arrived in Turin in 1961 on a flying carpet, fell in love with the city that welcomed him for the past 59 years: to return what he received and see the Carpet Museum born in the shadow of the Mole. A dream hanging by a thin thread, because his collection of around 1,800 priceless rugs risks leaving Turin forever.
    
    The gallery of the master Sabahi, 80 years old, an institution in the world of carpets, is located in the center, in Corso Vittorio Emanuele 40. Inside, thousands and thousands of carpets from every corner of the world: Kyrgyzstan, Persia, Caucasus , United States. Everywhere. Behind each piece, a story: In sixty years in the world of carpets I have collected thousands of specimens: carpets, kilims, horse saddles, salt bags, clothes and headgear worn by nomadic and permanent children in the Caucasus and Central Asia explains the gallery owner.
    
    A heritage collected in a lifetime, carpet by carpet
    After a life spent bargaining, buying, caring for and collecting, Sabahi would like this treasure made up of 1,800 carpets and 2,000 thematic books to remain somehow linked to the city that conquered it, that Turin with harsh but sunny winters. At 80, the possibilities are basically two: Transfer the collection to Tehran, where I was born and where I lived until I was 21, and where the authorities of the Iranian capital offer me a special museum space, or leave the collection in Piedmont, where I live with my children and my grandson.
    
    Concern for the future
    I am very attached to the city of Turin, the city where I graduated, my wife is from Piedmont and my children were born here and, frankly, I would prefer that - rather than leave for Iran - my collection of carpets and textiles would find space in this extraordinary city that allowed me to grow professionally explains the master.
    
    In the past, the teacher was able to explain his idea to the mayor Chiara Appendino: I have already talked about it with her, before the pandemic. able to seize this splendid opportunity because the carpet is art, culture is beauty.
    
    The link with Turin and the cultural world
    In recent years Sabahi has collaborated assiduously with the MAO Museo dArte Orientale, both with the current director Marco Guglielminotti and with his predecessor Marco Biscione: With Generoso Urciuoli we had set up, in my space in Corso Vittorio Emanuele 38, the exhibition on carpets depicting lions. At the moment my daughter Farian is trying with the Fondazione Musei di Torino to find a space in the city capable of hosting the collection without incurring costs.
    
    Despite a difficult global context, there is no shortage of projects. Indeed: We are planning a series of temporary exhibitions to offer the city and its visitors three different cultural itineraries. One of these will open to Uzbekistan, a country in strong economic growth, because it is from this former Soviet republic of Central Asia. which comes from a part of my collection reveals the gallery owner.
    
    Fascinated since childhood by Italy and the cinematographic masterpieces of the time, Sabahis bond with Turin, on the other hand, is strong. The Piedmontese capital is the city where the master of carpets, despite his travels around the world, has established his roots. The gallery owner, surrounded by the precious pieces of his office, reveals his emotions during a private visit with his colleague Alberto De Reviziis: "A beautiful poem by a famous Iranian poet says that life is nothing but a passage and I in this life I am a person who arrived in Turin on a flying carpet ". And it is from here that the passion for carpets was born: "The carpet has a smell, a charm, a beauty of its own. It is an enigma" says Sabahi.
    
    The dream of the museum
    "Opening the carpet museum in Turin will mean collaborating with the Fondazione Musei and the MAO Museo dArte Orientale to attract an international audience. But it will also mean involving researchers and anthropology students, giving them the opportunity to work in an unexplored field "is the appeal of the Master of carpets, who still hopes that in the shadow of the Mole a museum will be able to enhance the enormous cultural heritage he cherishes with love
