The coupling of big Ge-arrays like EUROBALL or GASP with ancillary detectors for the study of the structure properties of very exotic nuclei, far from the stability valley, has given outstanding results in the last years. A large fraction of the experiments performed with both arrays has been devoted to study both proton-rich and neutron-rich nuclei populated using stable beams provided by the LNL Legnaro and MeS Strasbourg accelerators. Nuclei lying close to the N = Z line are of particular interest being a laboratory where collective excitations as well as fundamental properties of the nuclear force can be tested, like isospin symmetry and isospin breaking terms, proton neutron pairing, dripline effects and coherent neutron and proton contributions to the nuclear excitations. Some of this properties are more evident (degree of isospin mixing) or can be only observed (collective effects) in heavy N = Z nuclei. In this contribution we present the experimental results obtained by our collaboration along and in the vicinity of N = Z line.
