This essay is dedicated to a hypothetical dialogue (which never took place) between Galileo Galilei and Teofilo Gallacini. The topic on which the two discuss, concerns construction as a domain related to mathematics and physics. Galileo supports the idea of a new science: the science of construction. Gallacini tries to refute Galileo's hypotheses b means the theory of proportions.
