From quark and nuclear matter down to solid-state systems and ultracold gases, mass asymmetry is known to profoundly influence the behavior of strongly interacting mixtures of fermionic particles, both at the few- and many-body level.

In this talk I will discuss the prospects offered by an ultracold 53Cr - 6Li Fermi mixture, currently under development within the PoLiChroM experiment in Florence. In particular, I will show how the unique few-body properties enabled by the peculiar chromium-lithium mass ratio render such a mixture a qualitatively new framework for the investigation of elusive phenomena of highly-correlated fermionic matter. Details on the experimental progresses will also be given.
