I deal with a public institution that sends emails from a variety of addresses such as portaligi1001@gmail.com, portaligi1002@gmail.com, etc. To my absolute dismay, when I type portaligi in my Gmail, I only get a few results that actually contain the string portaligi in the body of the email. I have many dozens of emails from them. I also tried searches like from:portaligi* but this syntax doesn't work, I get no results. Is there any way I can filter all the emails sent by an address starting with portaligi?

I don't believe you can do this in normal Gmail. You could access your Gmail over IMAP and use the client (eg thunderbird) for this.

Alternatively you may be able to create rules to label these mails on arrival & use the label to search for them.
