The ARGO-YBJ experiment is a multipurpose detector exploiting the full coverage approach at very high altitude. The apparatus, in stable data taking since November 2007 with an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV and a duty-cycle > 85%, is located at the YangBaJing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300m a.s.l., 606 g/cm2). A number of interesting results are available in cosmic ray physics and in gamma-ray astronomy after the first 3 years of stable data taking. In this paper gamma-ray astronomy results are summarized.
