Spring 2004 has seen the first experiments performed with the CLARA-PRISMA setup installed at LNL (Legnaro). The setup consists of CLARA, an array of 25 Clover (EUROBALL type) Ge detectors, placed at the target position of the large acceptance PRISMA magnetic spectrometer. The setup is an excellent tool to investigate the structure of neutron-rich nuclei, populated in multinucleon transfer reactions and deep inelastic collisions with stable beams. PRISMA allows the identification of the reaction products opening the possibility to go further away from stability in comparison with previous experimental activities using the aforementioned reactions. The setup has been commissioned in the first three months of the year and since March is fully operational. Five experiments had been performed, with beams delivered by the LNL tandem and the ALPI linac. In this contribution the main features of the setup as well as the preliminary outcome of the first experiments will be described.
