Raman spectroscopy is here shown to provide a powerful tool to differentiate between two different sp2 carbon nanostructures (carbon nanotubes and graphene) which have many properties in common and others that differ. Emphasis is given to the richness of both carbon nanostructures as prototype examples of nanostructured materials. A glimpse toward future developments in this field is presented.
