The "Fundación Galileo Galilei - INAF, Fundación Canaria" (FGG) is a Spanish no-profit institution constituted by "INAF", the Italian Institute of Astrophysics.

The FGG's aim is to promote the astrophysical research, as foreseen in the international agreement of May 26, 1979 ("Acuerdo de Cooperación en Materia de Astrofísica, B.O.E. Núm.161, 6 Jul 1979"), by managing and running the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG), a 3.58m optical/infrared telescope located in the Island of San Miguel de La Palma, together with its scientific, technical and administrative facilities.

Twenty-five years have passed since the inauguration of the TNG, when a dream materialized. At that time many astronomers often traveled to Chile to observe. The TNG appeared halfway and welcomed many of their programs, progressively renewing the offer of instruments to keep Italian astronomy at the science forefront. In a scenario that is more and more populated by new facilities, the TNG proudly continues on the same track, wanting to remain a solid point of reference.
