LUCIFER (Low-background Underground Cryogenic Installation For Elusive Rates) is a new project aiming to study the neutrinoless Double Beta Decay. It will be based on the technology of the scintillating bolometers. These devices shall have a great power in distinguishing signals from α’s and β/γ’s promising a background-free experiment, provided that the Q value of the candidate isotope is higher than the 208Tl line. The baseline candidate for LUCIFER is 82Se. Here the LUCIFER concept will be introduced and the prospects related to this project will be discussed.
