BOOMERanG (Balloon Observations Of Millimetric Extragalactic
Radiation and Geophysics) is a "new generation" Cosmic Microwave
Background (CMB)Anisotropy experiment. We shortly describe the rationale of
the experiment, the main features of the instrument and the technology
breakthroughs which made its development possible and present a map of the CMB
obtained from the long duration flight of the instrument.
