Eugenio Regazzini was born on August 12, 1946 in Cremona (Italy), and took his degree in 1969 at the University "L. Bocconi" of Milano. He has held positions at the universities of Torino, Bologna and Milano, and at the University "L. Bocconi": as assistant professor and lecturer from 1974 to 1980, and then professor since 1980. He is currently professor in probability and mathematical statistics at the University of Pavia. In the period 1989-2001 he has been head of the "Institute for Applications of Mathematics and Computer Science" of the Italian National Research Council (C.N.R.) in Milano. For twelve years between 1989 and 2006, he served as member of the Scientic Board of the Italian Mathematical Union (U.M.I.). In 2007, he has been elected Fellow of the IMS and, in 2001, Fellow of the "Istituto Lombardo - Accademia di Scienze e Lettere". His research activity in probability and statistics has covered a wide spectrum of topics among which: finitely additive probabilities, foundations of the Bayesian paradigm, exchangeability and partial exchangeability, distribution of functionals of random probability measures, stochastic integration, history of probability and statistics. Overall, he has been one of the most authoritative developers of de Finetti's legacy. In the last ve years, he has extended his scientic interests to probabilistic methods in mathematical physics; in particular, he has studied the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of equations, which are of interest for the kinetic theory of gases. The present interview was taken in occasion of his 65th birthday.
