An intense experimental activity has been accomplished during 2011 at the INFN-LNS by the MAGNEX spectrometer team. An overview of the experiments, including some of the main results will be presented. A special emphasis will be given to the activities strongly connecting our group with the French collaborators in the field of two-neutron transfer reactions and their implications on the understanding of neutron-neutron correlations in atomic nuclei. In addition in the same period the EDEN array of 36 Ne213 liquid scintillators has been moved from IN2P3-IPN Orsay and successfully installed at the INFN-LNS around the MAGNEX scattering chamber. This has opened unprecedented opportunities to face old and new puzzles of nuclear structure and nuclear reactions. A brief report of the status of installation and the commissioning will be given.
