Abstract. We present near-infrared and optical spectra of the fast nova V4444 Sagittarii at two single epochs in the early decline phase and unfiltered images obtained in quiescence. Based on this and other available data, we discuss about the nature of this nova, including the possibility of it being a recurrent nova.
