This article presents, in the form of a conversation, the content of the "The Author Catalog" by Carlo Revelli, published in the '70s and recently reprinted. Carlo Revelli puts together a systematic approach to the subject cataloguing, a great experience, and a wide theoretic and historical information. The importance of this work in the context of Italian library Science is beyond doubt as it is a tool for working in library and for the training of new librarians. It is the classic cataloguing book. Despite technology advancements that undermine its application, this work keeps intact its value for the understading of subject indexing.
