Laboratorio Nazionale TASC-INFM, Padriciano 99, I-34012 Trieste, Italy

An overview of recent experiments on C60-based ordered films overgrown on crystal surfaces will be given. Special emphasis will be devoted to theelectronic structure and the geometric molecular arrangement as explored by a wide variety of techniques.. The systems will include C60/Ag(100), C60/Ag(110), C60/Cu(221), C60/Si(111), and C60/Ge(111) interfaces. Inaddition, very recent results obtained on cluster-assembled carbon based films will be presented.
