  • The recent GAIA DR2 measurements of distances to galactic novae have allowed to re-analyse some properties of nova populations in the Milky Way and in external galaxies on new and more solid empirical bases. In some cases we have been able to confirm results previously obtained, such as the concept of nova populations into two classes of objects, that is \emph{disk} and \emph{bulge} novae and their link with the Tololo spectroscopic classification in \emph{Fe II} and \emph{He/N} novae.
