SN 1998bw, especially after the discovery of GRB 030329/SN 2003dh, seems to be the equivalent of the Rosetta stone for the SN/GRB connection. In this paper I review optical and near IR observations that have been carried out for this uncanny object, which has probably confirmed suspicions and ideas originally formulated in the early seventies of last century.
