Using the unique capabilities of the ALICE detectors for particle identification, different measurements have been performed to study the properties of the hot and dense matter created in the Pb–Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV. The analysis of the p-Pb data at √sNN = 5.02 TeV reveals that the suppression of high pT hadrons observed in heavy nuclei collisions can not be explained as due to initial state effects. The systems created in the p-Pb collisions do not show evidence of jet quenching but, surprisingly, exhibit characteristics of flow. In this paper a review of the main results on identified particle production measured in different colliding systems is presented, data are also compared to models.
