The experimental activity with the CHIMERA 4π detector in the last two years is reviewed in the light of the most recent technical achievements of the device. In fact the CHIMERA detector capabilities are going to be extended with the implementation of a new digital front-end electronics and the coupling with the FARCOS ancillary correlator array. The device has reached a sufficient versatility in order to obtain results for different and specific data analysis with stable and radioactive heavy ion beams, e.g., pygmy resonances, nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest, nuclear dynamics and study of the nuclear matter through the isospin degree of freedom. The obtained results and the expected future performances will be briefly discussed.
