GINGER (Gyroscopes IN General Relativity) is a project aiming at measuring the Lense-Thirring effect, at 1% level, with an experiment on earth. It is based on an array of ring-lasers, which are the most sensitive inertial sensors to measure the rotation rate of the Earth. The GINGER project is still under discussion; the experiment G-GranSasso is an R&D experiment financed by INFN Group II; it is studying the key points of GINGER and at the same time developing prototypes. In the following the signal coming out of a ring-laser and the present sensitivity are described. The prototypes GP2 and GINGERino and the preliminary results are reported. This project is inter-disciplinary since ringlasers provide informations for the fast variation of the earth rotation rate, they are used for the rotational seismology and for top sensitivity angle metrology.
