In the travel journalism by Tiziano Terzani the concepts of boundary and identity are often declinated and interpreted differently, and not intended in official perspectives; the attitude of the travelling writer-journalist is always oriented towards a full involvement in the local traditions and characteristics, with the manifest intention of canceling – albeit for the limited time of the journey – the “otherness” or, more precisely, take it, adopting the point of view of others. The paradox – and direct experience of the Tuscan journalist – occurs when, once the distance is cancelled, the country of adoption ends up rejecting him: a story of love and attraction for the Eastern world – in particular the Chinese one – thematic core of many travel reports by Terzani and litmus paper of his own travel journalism.

Abstract

In the travel journalism by Tiziano Terzani the concepts of boundary and identity are often declinated and interpreted differently, and not intended in official perspectives; the attitude of the travelling writer-journalist is always oriented towards a full involvement in the local traditions and characteristics, with the manifest intention of canceling – albeit for the limited time of the journey – the “otherness” or, more precisely, take it, adopting the point of view of others. The paradox – and direct experience of the Tuscan journalist – occurs when, once the distance is cancelled, the country of adoption ends up rejecting him: a story of love and attraction for the Eastern world – in particular the Chinese one – thematic core of many travel reports by Terzani and litmus paper of his own travel journalism.
