The status of the Unitarity Triangle, after the discovery of the Higgs particle and including the most recent results from LHC, will be presented. Different possibilities for detecting, in the quark sector, signals of physics beyond the Standard Model will be considered. The conclusion is that, even allowing for general New Physics loop contributions, the generalized Unitarity Triangle must be very close to the Standard Model one. Together with direct searches of new particles at LHC, this result strongly constraints models of New Physics.
