  A new facility named SPARC_LAB (Sources for Plasma Accelerators and Radiation Compton with Lasers and Beams) has been recently launched at the INFN National Labs in Frascati, merging the potentialities of the an ultra-brilliant electron beam photoinjector and of a high power Ti:Sa laser. The test facility is now completed, hosting a 150 MeV high brightness electron beam injector which feeds a 12 meters long undulator. Observation of FEL radiation in variuous configurations has been performed. In parallel to that a 200 TW laser that is linked to the linac and devoted to explore laser-matter interaction, in particular with regard to laser-plasma acceleration of electrons (and protons) in the self injection and external injection modes. The facility will be also used for particle driven plasma acceleration experiments (the COMB experiment). A Thomson scattering experiment coupling the electron bunch to the high-power laser to generate coherent monochromatic X-ray radiation is also in the commissioning phase. We report in this paper the recent results obtained at the SPARC_LAB facility.
