[Autom. eng. transl.] The preparation of virtual exhibitions on the web is constantly increasing, thus expanding the possibility offered by the Net of the simple announcement of real exhibition events. Not a few cultural institutions therefore dedicate part of their sites to "Virtual / Online / Digital Expositions / Exhibitions / Exhibits". These initiatives are also multiplying in the numismatic sphere. The essay, after defining what is meant by "virtual numismatic exhibition", presents the state of the art, starting from the pioneering experiences of the early nineties of the last century. Online numismatic exhibitions generally represent the transformation into digital format of exhibiting events temporarily presented to the public, while rarer are the achievements from scratch of solely virtual exhibitions. There is also the case of the conversion into an "online exhibition" of a highly successful text, initially published in paper format. The last part of the essay questions the educational potential offered by the creation of virtual exhibitions, based on the positive experience achieved by the A. as part of the activities of the Numismatic course, with the preparation of a "made-for-web" exhibition on the website of the Catholic University.
