The Beginning of String Theory or: How Nature Deceived Us in the Sixties
Dr. Gabriele Veneziano, CERN/TH & KITP

I will recall in plain terms how string theory was born at the end of the sixties out of attempts to understand the strong interaction. I will argue that, with our present understanding of the latter, we can see how Nature managed to deceive the theorists of the time leading them to discover a (potentially) more far-reaching theory of all particles and interactions.
