"...This famous dialogue was imagined by Giacomo Leopardi1
. In the last sentences he
was expressing hope as mere irony, as chance will remain an enemy. But not
everybody is as pessimistic as Leopardi, nor is convinced that chance can be
characterized in any way, if it exists at all. Let us then look after this fellow, who will
be the main character of the following discussion."
