In Heavy Ion Collisions (HIC) at Fermi energies (10 MeV/nucleon ≤ E/A ≤ 100 MeV/nucleon) hot nuclear systems are produced and they may disassemble by a variety of dynamical and statistical mechanisms with vastly different time scales (neck emission, fission, multifragmentation, fusion-evaporation, ecc.). The space-time sensitivity of the fragment-fragment Correlation Function to the emission of Intermediate Mass Fragments (IMFs 3≤ Z ≤ 25) has been investigated in order to pin down size and time characteristics of their emission region. In particular, IMF-IMF correlation functions have been applied to 124Sn+64Ni at E/A= 35 MeV reverse kinematics reactions where strong competition between dynamical and statistical production mechanisms of heavy fragments has been clearly demonstrated [1]. Preliminary comparisons between data and theoretical simulations, will be also discussed. [1]P. Russotto et al. PHYSICAL REVIEW C 91, 014610 (2015)
