ALICE is the LHC experiment dedicated to the study of heavy ion collisions. The main purpose of ALICE is to investigate the properties of a new state of deconfined nuclear matter, the Quark Gluon Plasma. Quarkonium measurements will play a crucial role in this investigation. In particular, the sequential suppression of the quarkonium states by color screening has long being suggested as a signature and thermometer of the QGP.
