The author of the book is Sabina D'Alessandro, an Italian academic.
Wiki: "The narrative of travel, or literature odeporica (from the greek ὁδοιπορικός  ), is a literary genre that deals with the journey , motivations and processes of the travel.

Rarely refers to a shift imaginary or dream or a route fantastic as that of ' hallucination due to the effect of the drug."

Generalmente si riferisce all'atto di spostarsi da un luogo all'altro compiendo un certo percorso.
