The fusion excitation function for $^{12}C + {}^{24}Mg$ was recently measured down to few microbarns and it has been evidenced that the hindrance effect starts at a relative high sub-barrier cross-section (about 1 mb). This may be due to the $\alpha$-like structure of $^{24}Mg$ or to its prolate deformation. The investigation of hindrance in $^{12}C + {}^{26}Mg$ may establish the underlying physics because $^{26}Mg$ is also deformed but does not have an $\alpha$-like structure. Furthermore, the available data on $^{12}C + {}^{24}Mg$ far below the barrier are well reproduced by calculations in the one-dimensional barrier penetration model. This interesting feature should be checked in the nearby case $^{12}C + {}^{26}Mg$. For these reasons, an experiment aimed at measuring the deep sub-barrier fusion in the latter system was carried out at the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro, using $^{26}Mg$ beams from the XTU Tandem accelerator and detecting the fusion evaporation residues with a $E\Delta E$-ToF detector telescope following an electrostatic beam deflector. The results obtained will be presented in this contribution.
