Some general arguments in the light of the application of the inorganic crystal scintillators in the search for rare processes are addressed. The continuous innovation provided by physics, chemistry and technology in their development allows the improvement of their performances. Also the possibility of detectors exploiting new materials is open and the further application to this field of research is promising.
