Where are the limits of the Nuclear Chart? Which are the properties of multi-nucleon systems under extreme conditions? Can we build a unified description of the nuclear properties? How do these affect astrophysical processes, state-of-the-art technologies and medical applications? These are some of the most relevant issues faced by today's Nuclear Physicists. In this context, worldwide efforts to tackle the nature of exotic nuclei comprise the construction of new-generation Radioactive Ion Beam facilities. The Italian community is deeply involved in the process with the construction of SPES (INFN). This contribution will focus on the present status of the facility and a selection of physics cases.
