Neutrinos may be Majorana particles. If so, neutrinoless double beta decay processes could be observed by the next-generation bb0nu experiments. I will briefly discuss one of the most promising ideas in the field, the use of a High Pressure Gas Xenon TPC (HPGXe) with electroluminescence gain and optical readout. A 100 kg incarnation of such a device will start operations at the Canfranc Underground Lab in Spain in 2015. The technology can be extrapolated to 1 ton, and thus lead the exploration of the inverse hierarchy in Majorana landscape.
