Abstract: The INFN Strategic Project PLASMONX (PLASma acceleration and MONochromatic X-ray production) deals with the reation of a High Intensity Laser Laboratory at LNF (HILL@LNTF) beside the SPARC bunker, with which it will communicate via a channel for the propagation of laser beams. In this laboratory FLAME (Frascati Laser for Acceleration
and Multidisciplinary Experiments), a 200TW, 30fs, IOHz Ti:Sapphire Laser, will be set up. The main goals of this project are: 1) demonstration of high-gradient acceleration of relativistic electrons injected into electron plasma waves excited by ultra-short, super-intense laser pulses; 2) development of a monochromatic and tuneable X-ray source in the 20-1000 keV range, based on Thomson Scattering of laser pulses by the 20-200
MeV electrons of the LINAC of the SPARC project. One of the aims of the project consists in the realization of a pulsed source of ionizing radiation for R\&D activity in different fields.
