I’ll review the current status of the stellar population assignment for novae. Observations in the Milky Way and in external galaxies point out the existence of two nova populations : fast and bright novae, mainly originated from massive white dwarfs and associated with the `spiral arm’ stellar population, and slow and faint novae, originated from lighter white dwarfs and associated with `bulge’ stellar population. Finally I’ll discuss the recent detection of Lithium in the spectra of Nova Cen 2013.
