AGATA is an innovative $\gamma$-ray tracking array, built by a collaborations of thirteen European countries. It represents the state of the art for $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy in Europe. The detector is composed of hyper-pure Ge segmented crystals, and it allows one to determine the photon interaction positions inside the detector with a five mm precision. The single photon scattering path inside the crystal can then be reconstructed. These features enable unprecedented energy resolution as well as a large detection efficiency. AGATA started its first physics measurements at Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) in 2009, and then moved to GSI, Germany and to GANIL, France. AGATA has then moved again to LNL for a new physics campaign stating in 2022 and lasting several years. In this contribution, I will briefly summarize the past physics results from AGATA and then concentrate on the $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy campaign at LNL, describing the different phases foreseen as well as the ancillary detectors employed to select the reaction channel of interest. Selected nuclear structure physics cases will be presented.
