In the European and international framework, ENEA coordinates the Italian fusion program, supported by linked third parties as universities, research institutes and industries. In this context, the Experimental Engineering Division (FSN-ING) is involved in experimental and numerical activities related to Breeding Blanket (BB) and Divertor technologies development. This paper describes the scientific works presently ongoing at Brasimone R.C. enveloped in LLE, lithium, helium, tritium and pressurized water technologies, characterization of structural materials, analysis of materials corrosion rate and development and qualification of anti-permeation/corrosion barrier. The experimental activities conducted for the investigation of safety-relevant scenarios as In-Box LOCA (LLE-water interaction in the WCLL or shock waves propagation generated by helium injection in LLE in the HCLL/DCLL-BBs) are here reported. Finally, new activities have been planned to support the Divertor Tokamak Test divertor characterization, the large-scale LLE-water interaction and a LLE components validation in relevant scale for WCLL-BB.
