The solution of the problem of heat exhaust has been pointed out as one of the main challenge towards the realization of magnetic confinement fusion. In the last years, two concepts have been proposed in alternative to the conventional divertor solution adopted for ITER: modification of the magnetic topology in the divertor region and liquid metal as plasma facing component. The role of the Divertor Tokamak Test facility (DTT) in the power exhaust implementation strategy is discussed. The evolution of the project, since the original proposal in 2015 to the present design, is shown. The DTT facility is well integrated in the European strategy and the final decision on the divertor configuration will be made, within 2022-23, on the basis of the indication of the Power Exhaust Group constituted by the EUROfusion Consortium. Finally, the main milestones and the timeline of the project are illustrated.
