The understanding of the QCD in the non-perturbative regime, is one of the key issues to have a complete picture of strong interactions. Recent findings of new and unexpected resonances, with unresolved properties, show that the hadron spectrum is not yet completely understood. This is also underlined by the ongoing discussion on multiquark states, and on other exotic states with gluonic degrees of freedom. The P̅ANDA experiment, one of the biggest enterprises at the FAIR facility, aims at exploring this field thanks to the gluon rich environment offered by the annihilation of antiprotons. A general overview of the P̅ANDA physics program is given in this paper.
