The SuperB project is a very ambitious program whose goal is to build, in the immediate vicinity of the Frascati National Laboratory, a e(+)e(-)collider operating in the (sic)(4S) region with a luminosity in excess of 10(36) Hz/cm(-2), surpassing by two orders of magnitude the present generation. Such a progress has ben made possible by the new Crab Waist colliding scheme together with the design of very low emittance rings. The physics goal of this machine is to determine the structure of the new physics (NP) at the Terascale that is likely to show up at the LHC. This will be possible through a very detailed scrutiny of all NP induced indirect effects in rare (or even forbidden in the Standard Model)decays and precision measurements in the quark and lepton sectors. The project, an official element of the European HEP Strategy, has been recently approved and fully funded by the Italian government. The site has been selected and the detector collaboration is currently being f! ormed. The first beams are expected in 2016, with a yearly integrated luminosity of 15 ab(-1).
