Following a referendum, since 2014 it has been implemented the fusion between the municipality of Virgilio, situated along the Mincio river, and that of Borgoforte, situated along the Po river. With the same referendum the citizens chose the new name: Borgo Virgilio.
It was named in 1884 after the famous latin poet who was born in Andes/Pietole (previously it was called Quattroville, and it included Cerese, Pietole, Bellaguarda and Olmazzo).
Borgoforte was founded in 1216 to meet the need to place a defensive barrier against the armed raids of the people from Ferrara, Reggio Emilia and Modena.
