We present the main results achieved by the Borexino experiment on solar neutrino physics. Borexino is a large mass/high radiopurity liquid scintillator detector located under the Gran Sasso mountain (Italy). It has collected high quality data since May 2007. The results presented here refer to the so-called Phase 1 of the experiment which ended in May 2010. Borexino Phase 2 started in October 2011 after an intensive campaign of purification which significantly improved the (already exceptional) quality of the scintillator. The physics potentialities and future perspectives of this second phase of Borexino will be shortly discussed.
