I have the following trigger created in phpMyAdmin:

Table: tb_agenda Time: AFTER Event: INSERT

BEGIN
    INSERT INTO tb_realizacao (dt_agenda,
                               titulo, 
                               titulo_en, 
                               descricao, 
                               descricao_en, 
                               dt_cadastro)
        SELECT  dt_agenda,
                titulo,
                titulo_en,
                descricao,
                descricao_en,
                dt_cadastro
        FROM tb_agenda
        WHERE dt_agenda < NOW();

    DELETE FROM tb_agenda
     WHERE dt_agenda < NOW();
END

The trigger works 50%. The INSERT instruction works perfectly but the DELETE one doesn't execute. I tried to execute it in the SQL panel and it works fine.

Your trigger tries to do something that cannot be done in MySQL. You cannot use an SQL statement (DELETE, in your case) on the table that is associated to the trigger. You will get an error like this:

ERROR 1442 (HY000): Can't update table 't' in stored function/trigger because it is already used by statement which invoked this stored function/trigger.

You are probably using MyISAM for your table. The DELETE does not cause a rollback, because the engine is not transactional. If you switch to InnoDB (which is usually the best choice) you will notice that the trigger and the original INSERT will completely fail.
