Abstract
We summarize the results of the Cosmic Microwave
Background (CMB) working group of the ARENA project. The focus
has been on precision measurements of CMB polarization (looking for
the echoes of cosmological inflation) and high angular resolution CMB
measurements (looking for Sunyaev Zeldovich effect in distant clusters
of Galaxies, to probe the evolution of the Universe, Dark Matter and
Dark Energy). For both projects the Dome C site represents the best
choice worldwide.
