Along with Enrico Fermi, Franco Rasetti played a key role in the rebirth of Italian physics in the 1920s and 1930s. In this interview he talks about experiments at Caltech on the Raman effect in 1928-1929, mountain climbing, his passion for bugs, fossils and flowers, and doing physics in Florence, Rome, Berlin-Dahlem and Quebec. Rasetti also reminisces about the Rome school of mathematics and other scientists he has known and worked with in Europe and in North America, including Robert and Glenn Millikan, Lise Meitner, and O.
