The Italians’ portal
Virgilio is the first-ever web portal in Italy. Founded in 1996 as a search engine and web directory manually edited by a team of editors (based on the Yahoo! model), over the years it has evolved, becoming a general portal.
Its content organised into thematic channels and by geolocalized areas, combined with webmail, search, chat and community services, have made Virgilio a reference point in the Italian web panorama. That’s how it is, how it was and how it will be.
Where global, national and local intersect.
