Abstract

Can a story become an instrument of science? Can fiction come to the rescue to those who are caught by a powerful headache every time they hear the word “mathematics”? There is no definite and unambiguous answer to these questions. Everything depends on the sensitivity of both the teller and who agrees to listen. A mystery lasting four centuries, full of attempts to solve it and as many failures, lends itself well to this kind of experiment.
