The past three years were very exciting in the field of Cosmic Ray physics: the interesting measurements by ATIC and PAMELA collaborations triggered a hot debate on possible new sources of electrons and positrons, and called for a careful modelization of both the “conventional” CR production and propagation and of the possible “extra” components of astrophysical or exotic nature; in particular the possibility that CR spectra could bring a signature of Dark Matter annihilation or decay fascinated the scientific community and was investigated by a large number of authors.
