Description

The present status of direct detection of Dark Matter (DM) particles will be summarized, with particular care to the DAMA model-independent DM annual modulation results. Arguments on comparisons will be addressed showing that there is large room for compatibility between positive signals and negative hints, considering both the different adopted procedures and techniques, the different experimental observables, the different exposures, the existing experimental and theoretical uncertainties and the widely open scenarios for astrophysical, particle and nuclear Physics aspects. Recent results on diurnal investigation, Earth shadow effect and on some model dependent corollary analysis will also be introduced. Realistic experimental perspectives will be, finally, addressed with attention to some particular cases.
