Rotation Curves of Spiral Galaxies reveal the presence of an enormous quantity of a mysterious component dominating the dynamics of these objects, called Dark Matter. High resolution observations allow the construction of mass models including a well defined dark matter halo profile with a cored central density. Moreover there exists amazing relations between the structural parameters of invisible and luminous matter, that are bound to play a decisive role in investigating the Nature of "Dark Matter Phenomenon" and in building a successful theory of Galaxy Formation.Cusped halo profiles, a crucial feature of standard Cold Dark Matter scenario, are inconsistent with available kinematical data, being this intriguing discrepancy among the most important debate in Astroparticle Physics. A theoretical study for the empirical distribution of dark matter will be developed in this project, based on non-extensive statistics, looking toward a universal profile that meets these remarkable systematics.
