Serendipia [Serendipity] is a sound narrative geolocated in the civil cemetery of Ceares.It is a fragmented story recorded in soundtracks located in El Sucu, proposing to solve a crime that took place in Gijon in the late 19th century.

The sound drift narrative axis is Simona Margarita's telling, a historian specialized in feminism who is preparing a thesis on the figure of Rosario de Acuña. During her investigation, she discovers an unsolved crime happened in Gijon in 1895. This is Edgardo del Pozo, a symbolist painter protected by the Count of Goncourt, with whom it is said he has a loving relationship. Del Pozo's body is found in his mansion in Gijón by his fiancee, Gemma Oldman, a Catalan anarchist who advocates for women's rights.
Through radio and newspaper news, quotes, poems, excerpts from interviews, documents of the era and Margarita's telling, strollers would experience a sound drift that proposes links between past and present, presence and absence, reality and fiction.
