The electronic structure of FeSe—the simplest iron-based superconductor (Fe-SC)—conceals a potential of abrupt increase of superconducting tran-sition temperature realized under the pressure or in a single-layer film. This is also a system where the appearing of a spontaneous electronic anisotropy known as the nematicity is formed far above the superconducting transition and is not accompanied with a magnetic ordering. The given review deals with the determining electronic structure of these compounds, its evolution with temperature, pressure, doping, and other impacts, which cause such key phenomena in Fe-SC as nematicity and high-temperature superconductivity.

Keywords: iron-based superconductors, nematicity, ARPES, intercalated system, FeSe/SrTiO$_{3}$ films.
