The Borexino experiment (located at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso) is the most radiopure liquid scintillator neutrino detector allover the world. Starting from 2007, the Borexino experiment provided a precision measurement of 7Be solar neutrino flux (including also a detailed day/night modulation analysis), and gave the first detection of pep neutrinos, a detection of the 8B neutrinos at low energy threshold (3 MeV) and an important contribution to the geo-neutrino physics. The forthcoming program includes an improvement of the solar neutrino and geo-neutrino detection and an important project focused on the sterile neutrino search (SOX).
