In the framework of a large program aimed at studying the old and intermediate-age stellar populations of the Carina dSph galaxy, we present low resolution spectra for $\approx$300 stars collected with FORS2@VLT. The selected sample of candidates includes, for the firt time, stars from the three main populations of Carina: old Horizonthal Branch stars, intermediate-age Red Clump stars, and young Main Sequence stars. We present here the first results concerning the kinematical and chemical properties of different subsamples.
