Why a virtualized environment is safer?

Virtualization
In the master's thesis I'm doing, I propose a security model based on virtualization. I have read about virtualization and I've found that a virtualized environment has also suffered many attacks. So I question whether a virtualized environment is safer than a virtualized environment without.

I have found that virtual desktops, running through virtual servers, still get hit with the same viruses that a hardware based machine will….so I can’t see any advantages in that respect.
