The book tells the concept of Chance using three different voices.

Painting, words and photography seek by themselves and touching in an unexpected symphony on theme of randomness as source of everything, also in art.

The theory of universe's random nature, confirmed by the discovery of the Higgs boson, has an influence on Bertelli's poetic because of its philosophical implications: the use of discarded materials by chance in his hands is the engine of his work.

This book and this encounter are made by a hum of Chance and through it reflect on the origin of the world: multiform as the complex universe.
