This chapter presents the long autobiographical interview of Luigi Nono collated and organized by critic Enzo Restagno in 1987. Nono answers questions such as when and under what circumstances his life began to be affected by music; the circumstances in which he met Bruno Maderna for the first time; what he enjoyed studying in high school; the meaning of “Missa Di dadi”; the meaning of the resurgence of his interest in Bellini, and what this music meant for him in the past when he first discovered it; his observations about the musical use of silence; and the cyclical process of his works.

Keywords:   Luigi Nono, interview, autobiography, Enzo Restagno, critic, Bruno Maderna
