The present status of the microscopic foundation of the nuclear Equation of State is briefly reviewed. At zero temperature, considerable progress has been done in the last few years in identifying the main physical effects which determine the nuclear saturation curve, at least for not too high densities. Besides the many-body correlations, originating from the bare two-nucleon interactions, three-body forces, meson renormalization and non-nucleonic degrees of freedom appear to be of special relevance. However, due to the complexity of the problem, a complete solution is still missing. At finite temperature, only very few studies have been presented till now. It is pointed out that the phenomenology on hot nuclei, obtained in heavy ion collisions, could be used as a Check for different microscopic theories of the nuclear Equation of State.
