The originality of the book projected by Maria Rosaria Costanza, writer and essayist, has a symbolic value of an itinerary, a voyage as a metaphor.
Through the movement of the wind and the sea, compared to the motion of the soul, through a sailboat with an unfurled sail that desires to sail… and another boat that remains in the middle of the sea with its sail lowered, the writing urges us to think about which wind we are and about the winds of the destiny.
