The DAMA/LIBRA set-up (about 250 kg highly radiopure NaI(Tl)) is running at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the I.N.F.N.. The results obtained by exploiting the model independent annual modulation signature for the presence of Dark Matter particles in the galactic halo will be discussed. The data satisfy at high confidence level all the many requirements of the Dark Matter annual modulation signature. Presently DAMA/LIBRA is in data taking in a new configuration equipped with new high quantum efficiency PMTs. Results, implications and experimental perspectives will be addressed.
