The study of neutrino properties is one of the fundamental challenges in particle physics. In the last years, several progresses have been made, but still we do not know the absolute mass of neutrinos or whether they are Dirac or Majorana particles. The only way to probe the neutrino nature is through the observation of Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay, a not yet observed nuclear transition which emits two electrons and no neutrinos. In this paper, after a brief introduction to the topic, the present and future strategies to detect this process are presented.
