4. Summary

We have reported on the detection of the Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 1068 up to 100 keV, obtained with the PDS instrument onboard BeppoSAX. This is the first time that a Compton-thick Seyfert 2 is detected at so high energies, supporting the scenario in which medium to hard X-rays are due to reflection, from both ionized and neutral circumnuclear media, of an otherwise invisible nuclear radiation.
