We present some recent results on a nonlocal version of the Allen-Cahn equation, which is also related, at a large scale, to surfaces which minimise a nonlocal perimeter functional. We discuss some features, such as symmetry property for the equation, regularity and rigidity results for the geometric interface and boundary effects.
