Abstract.

I will present some old, new and possibly "incoming" results obtained with Matteo Novaga, Enzo Tortorelli, Annibale Magni and Alessandra Pluda on the motion by curvature of a network of curves in the Euclidean plane. Moreover, I will discuss some actual open problems and research directions.
