Title: Recent results and perspectives of ββ decay experiments with crystal scintillators at Gran Sasso

Crystal scintillators offer important tools to investigate ββ decay modes in various isotopes with a well known technology and the possibility of enrichment of the material in specific isotopes. Large efforts to develop and use highly radiopure dedicated detectors are carried out at Gran Sasso by the DAMA-Kiev collaboration. These efforts have allowed the investigation of many types of decay modes in several isotopes and the improvement of the existing limits or the set of new ones. A short summary on main aspects is given in this paper.
