Hadronic resonances are a valuable tool to study the properties of the medium formed in heavy-ion collisions. In particular, they can provide information on particleformation mechanisms and on the properties of the medium at freeze-out, and furthermore they contribute to the systematic study of energy loss and recombination. Measurements of resonances in pp and in p–Pb collisions provide a necessary baseline for heavy-ion data and help to disentangle initial-state effects from medium-induced effects. In this proceedings the latest ALICE results on hadronic resonance production in pp, p–Pb and Pb–Pb collisions at LHC energies will be presented. In particular, the production of the K*(892)0 and ø(1020) resonances at mid-rapidity has been studied in different collision systems at LHC energies, reconstructing the resonances via their hadronic decay in a wide momentum range. The resonance transverse momentum spectra, mean transverse momenta, ratio to stable particles and nuclear modification factor will be discussed.
