Abstract: The Asiago 1.22m telescope began operations 70 yrs ago. It has always been primarily used for stellar spectroscopy. Telescope, dome and spectrograph have undergone a major refurbishment during the last 8 yrs (S. Ciroi, this volume). We review here how this impacted the output science and the type of research programs pursued with the telescope, and outline its perspective future use in the era of major all sky spectroscopic surveys (RAVE, Hermes-GALAH, Gaia-ESO, Gaia).
