In this work after a short introduction on the structure of Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide, the
different researches on atmospheric physics developed by Italian scientists are presented. The international
activities are described, with particular attention both to APE experiment and the setting up of the new base in
Dome-C. The results obtained are also discussed and the new projects proposed by SCAR or other international
bodies are recalled. The reduction of funds and fall in young people interested in scientifi c studies represent the
main problems for the future work.
