Vanessa's supervisor, Dr Francesco Perono Cacciafoco, is also the co-author of the paper.

The paper deals with the notion and the description of imaginary places, in particular imaginary islands and the etymology of their names, focusing not only on Historical Linguistics and Etymology, but also on Historical Cartography, Historical Geography, and History of Culture.
