The portal of Italians,
the beauty of the Internet.

Virgilio is the first portal born in Italy. Founded in 1996 as a search engine and web directory manually curated by a team of editors, over the years it has changed guise several times, becoming a generalist portal that told (and still tells) the beauty of the Internet, as one of its iconic advertising campaign used to say.

Content organized into thematic channels and by geo-localized territorial areas, combined with webmail, search, community and local dirtectories services, make Virgilio a landmark of the Italian web scene. Today as yesterday and tomorrow.


Webmail and app (Virgilio Mail), premium (Virgilio Mail Plus), certified e-mail (Virgilio PEC), cloud space (Drive) and productivity tools (Docs).

Canali tematici e Video

Virgilio Sport, Virgilio Motori, Virgilio Video, Virgilio Sapere, Virgilio Scuola: the portal’s strength also lies in its two vertical spin-offs and video platform with the best clips from the web.


Blogs, forums, chats, dating, Q&A, and more: the Virgilio community is a point of reference for thousands of Italians.

All that’s good (and useful)

Virgilio has always been characterized by its strong local and proximity attitude, with a portal dedicated to each Italian municipality where you can find news, useful information, weather, maps, services, businesses, events and everything you need to experience your city at its best.
