GALILEO is a project aiming to the building of a 4pi high-resolution gamma-ray array by using GASP tapered detectors and capsules of the EUROBALL Cluster detectors. The array will be located at the National Laboratories of Legnaro where stable beams are provided by the Tandem-ALPI-PIAVE accelerator complex and, in the future, exotic radioactive ion beams will be delivered by SPES. One of the most innovative activities of the project is the transformation of the original EUROBALL 7-capsules cluster detectors in triple cluster detectors. The triple cluster detectors will be placed on a ring at 90 degrees with respect to the beam axis while the GASP tapered detectors will cover symmetrically the forward and backward angles. R&D activities are conducted for the development of a complete cryostat for the triple cluster detector and for building new anti-Compton shields optimized for the shape of the new triple cluster detector. The development of the front-end, digital sampling, preprocessing and readout electronics is advancing in synergy with the recent developments made or ongoing for the AGATA project. The talk will make an overview of the status and perspectives of the GALILEO project within the general context of the gamma-ray spectroscopy activity at the National Laboratories of Legnaro.
