Brief tramp around Italy (7)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'brief' is the definition.
(both can mean a collection of information)

'tramp around italy' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'tramp' could be 'i' (where the crossword setter is 'Tramp') and 'i' is found within the answer.
'around' could be 'o' (a round letter) and 'o' is located in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

Can you help me to learn more?
