ABSTRACT
Higgs boson discovery is now a reality, after fifty years of hard hunting. It has been a great success along the road toward comprehension of nature at its fundamental level. Here briefly depicted is the story of an impressive international effort along two parallel lines, theoretical ideas and experimental research, a battle never seen until now in science. Deep principles, like symmetries, transformations, invariances, conservation laws, and experimental skillness, are the texture where hypotesis and solutions have emerged around one of the main mysteries of nature, the origin of matter mass at the elementary constituent scale, with profound impact at the opposite side, on the cosmological picture of our universe.
