Optical searches can detect supernovae (SNe) only if they suffer of a limited amount of dust extinction. This is a severe limitation as most of the core-collapse SNe could explode inside dusty regions. We describe a few ongoing projects aimed at detecting dusty SNe at near-IR wavelengths both in ground-based and HST images and to study their properties.
