Starting from the Swift sample we defined a complete sub-sample of 58 bright long Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB), 52 of them (90%) with a redshift determination, in order to characterize their properties. This complete sample of bright long- GRBs allowed us to investigate their evolution with cosmic time and properties. We focused in particular on the GRB luminosity function, on the spectral-energy correlations of their prompt emission, on the nature of dark bursts and on possible correlations between the prompt and the X-ray afterglow properties.
