The ICARUS-T600, the biggest LAr-TPC detector ever realized, concluded a very successful run at LNGS performing a sensitive search for anomalous $\nu_{e}$ appearance, as suggested by LSND. Recorded cosmic rays are being analyzed to study atmospheric neutrinos. The detector is being overhauled at CERN to be ready for installation at FermiLab by December 2016. Within the SBN project it will investigate the sterile neutrino existence, exploring in three years of data taking both $\nu_{e}$ appearance, with $5\sigma$ sensitivity in the LSND parameter region, and $\nu_{\mu}$ disappearance, with a sensitivity exceeding by an order of magnitude the present limits.
