Continuing little experiments to better undestand the relation among
fonts, faces, frames etc, i noticed
that  if i have 2 frames (A and B) and  i evaluate from ielm in frame A
(set-frame-font "liberation serif" nil nil) . when i check the default
face's font i see different values in frame A from frame B.

So it seems that default face is a frame's variable.

i mean every frame has its own default face? Is that right?
As you can see after "C-h f set-frame-font":

If FRAMES is nil, apply the font to the selected frame only.

So the second nil in your expression means you set a font only for the
current frame A.

So default face is not a global emacs session variable. It's an attribute per frame.
