Silvio Berlusconi is an Italian media tycoon and former Prime Minister of Italy. He is the founder and chairman of Mediaset, the largest commercial broadcaster in the country. He also owns the football club A.C. Milan.
Berlusconi was born on September 29, 1936, in Milan, Italy. His father, Luigi Berlusconi, was a bank employee and his mother, Rosa Bossi, a housewife. He has three siblings: Maria Antonietta, Maria Stella, and Paolo.
Berlusconi’s early education was at a private Catholic school, the Liceo classico Giuseppe Parini. He later attended the University of Milan, where he studied law.
Berlusconi’s career began in the 1960s, when he started his own advertising agency. He soon became involved in the media industry, and in 1978 he founded Mediaset, which quickly became the largest commercial broadcaster in Italy.
In 1994, Berlusconi was elected Prime Minister of Italy. He served three terms as Prime Minister, from 1994 to 1995, from 2001 to 2006, and from 2008 to 2011.

Quella di Piazza del Popolo sarà la grande festa della libertà.
Non vedo l'ora di esserci.

|7||Took charge of Milan in 1986, transforming the club into one of the best in Europe and cheering them to four European Cup titles and seven Italian titles.|
|8||He met and fell in love with actress Veronica Lario in 1980 when he was still married to first wife, Carla. They married on December 15th, 1990, and had 3 children: Barbara Berlusconi, Eleonora (born on May 7th, 1986) and Luigi (born on September 27th, 1988).|

|11||In June 2000 he was the richest man in Italy ($ 12.8 billion, according to "Forbes") and the leader of the biggest conservative political party in Italy, "Forza Italia", founded by him on January 18th, 1994. He is probably the most controversial political figure in Italy. His entry into politics was immediately the subject of a large national debate (which still goes on), which has divided the Italian people essentially in two parts. Italians moderates considered him the savior of his country from the danger of communist coalition (at that time led by Achille Occhetto), and because of that became the subject of a judicial persecution by the left politicized judiciary which is unprecedented in the history of Italy. The other part considered him the worst Italian criminal ever existed, accused in more than 20 court proceedings and who entered politics only to save himself from jail and expand his private business interests to the detriment of the rest of the nation. He has always fought with a particular force the left coalition in Parliament. It is also famous a hard verbal confrontation that took place in the European Parliament on July 2nd, 2003, with the German eurodeputy Martin Schulz: he heavily criticized Berlusconi and his government and so Berlusconi told him: "Signor Schulz, so che in Italia c'è un produttore che sta montando un film sui campi di concentramento nazisti: la suggerirò per il ruolo di Kapo. Lei è perfetto!".|
