CUORE is a cryogenic experiment focusing on the search of neutrinoless double beta decay of ${}^{130}Te$ and is located at the Gran Sasso National Laboratories. Its detector consists of 988 $TeO_{2}$ crystals operating at a base temperature of $\sim 10$ mK, and it is the first ton-scale and ultra-low background bolometric experiment ever realized for this purpose. A detailed description of the phenomena contributing to the observed energy spectra, such as $2vbb$ decay and the products of radioactive contaminations, is of fundamental importance for a correct interpretation of the results. Here, the main results of this study will be presented.
