Abstract
AGILE is an Italian Space Agency (ASI) mission devoted to $\gamma$-ray astrophysics in the 30 MeV - 50 GeV energy range, with simultaneous X-ray imaging capability in the 18-60 keV band. Launched in April 2007, the AGILE satellite has completed its tenth year of operations in orbit with all detectors operating nominally. The small high-tech jewel, designed for an operative life of only two years, continues its mission with high efficiency, and it is substantially contributing to improve our knowledge of the high-energy sky. We present an overview of the main AGILE $\gamma$-ray satellite scientific results and discoveries.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
