The ARGO-YBJ experiment has been in stable data taking for 5 years at the YangBaJing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300 m a.s.l., 606 g/cm2). With a duty-cycle greater than 86% the detector collected about 5 X 10**11 events in a wide energy range, from few hundreds GeV up to the PeV. A number of open problems in cosmic ray physics are being faced exploiting different analyses. In this talk the last results so far obtained in gamma-ray astronomy and in the cosmic ray physics will be summarized.
