The field of chemical evolution modeling of the Galaxy is experiencing in the last years a phase of high activity and important achievements. There are, however, several open questions which still need to be answered. In this review I summarize what have been the most important achievements and what are some of the most urgent questions to be answered. 
Models of Chemical Evolution
The basic principles underlying galactic chemical evolution and the most important results of chemical evolution models are discussed. In particular, the chemical evolution of the Milky Way galaxy,
THE MILKY WAY AND THE EVOLUTION OF DISK GALAXIES
We present a phenomenological approach to the study of disk galaxy evolution, based on i) a detailed modelling of the Milky Way (used as a prototype disk galaxy) and ii) an extension of the model to
Abundance Gradients and the Formation of the Milky Way
In this paper we adopt a chemical evolution model, which is an improved version of the Chiappini, Matteucci, & Gratton model, assuming two main accretion episodes for the formation of the Galaxy, the
Chemical evolution and abundance gradients in the Milky Way
We extend our model of chemical evolution that successfully account for the main observables in the solar neighborhood (Alibes, Labay & Canal 2001) to the whole Milky Way halo and disk. We assume an
EVOLUTION OF THE LIGHT ELEMENTS
The predictions of Galactic chemical evolution models for D and 3He are described in connection with those on the other Galactic quantities for which observational constraints are available. Models
Abundance gradients and their evolution in the Milky Way disk
Based on a simple, but fairly successful, model of the chemical evolution of the Milky Way disk, we study the evolution of the abundances of the elements He, C, N, O, Ne, Mg, Al, Si, S, Ar and Fe. We
Evolution of D and 3 He in the Galaxy
The predictions of Galactic chemical evolution models for D and 3He are described in connection with those on the other Galactic quantities for which observational constraints are available. Models
Galactic chemical evolution of Lithium: interplay between stellar sources
In this paper we study the evolution of 7Li in the Galaxy considering the contributions of various stellar sources: Type II supernovae, novae, red giant stars, and asymptotic giant branch (AGB)
Superbubbles and the Galactic evolution of Li, Be and B
From a recent re-analysis of the available data, Be and B Galactic evolution appears to show evidence for a two-slope behaviour with respect to O. The inferred Be/O abundance ratio in halo stars is
The Mass Surface Density in the Local Disk and the Chemical Evolution of the Galaxy
We have studied the effect of adopting different values of the total baryonic mass surface density in the local disk at the present time, Σ(R☉, tGal), on the model of the chemical evolution of the
