Borexino is a large liquid scintillator detector with unprecedented intrinsic radiopurity levels, located at the LNGS laboratory in Italy. Its primary goal is to perform a real-time solar neutrinos spectroscopy, and the most recent result consists in the simultaneous measurement of the fluxes of neutrinos from the pp, 7Be and pep reactions, from the pp chain. The current goal of the Borexino Collaboration consists in the detection of the solar neutrinos from the CNO cycle reactions: a general strategy to pursue this measurement will be outlined in the following.
