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.

Berlusconi’s net worth is estimated to be around $8 billion. His salary as Prime Minister was $365,000 per year.

Berlusconi has been married twice. His first wife was Carla Dall’Oglio, with whom he had two children: Marina and Pier Silvio. His second wife is Veronica Lario, with whom he has three children: Barbara, Eleonora, and Luigi.

Berlusconi has been accused of various crimes, including tax fraud, corruption, and sexual assault. He has been convicted of tax fraud and sentenced to four years in prison (which was later reduced to one year), but he has appealed the conviction and is currently awaiting a final verdict.

Berlusconi is 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 meters) tall and has blue eyes.

2[on appointing fifty deputies to government from his advertising company] I'm like Prince Charming. They were pumpkins and I turned them into parliamentarians.
3[on being asked if he would be attending Barack Obama's inauguration] No. I'm not an extra. I'm a lead.
4According to a survey, when Italian women were asked if they would like to have sex with me, 30 per-cent said yes, while the other 70 per-cent said, "What, again?"
5[Shortly before some TV programs were canceled from the public TV] The way Biagi, Santoro and Luttazzi used Italian Public Television was criminal. It's a specific duty for the new administration to prevent this thing from happening again.


1He is the firstborn of Rosa Bossi and Luigi Berlusconi (March 27th, 1908 - 1985). He had a sister, Maria Francesca Antonietta (June 9th, 1943 - February 25th, 2009) and has a brother, Paolo (born on December 6th, 1949).
2Berlusconi lost the political elections 2 times: on April 21th, 1996, and on April 9th and 10th, 2006, this time for just about 24,000 votes out of 38 million. On February 24th and 25th, 2013, for the first time in the history of Italy no coalition has obtained an absolute majority in the Senate of the Republic, causing 2 months of political stalemate.
3Is portrayed by Nanni Moretti, Elio De Capitani and Michele Placido on Il caimano (2006), a movie about his vicissitudes, which was released just days before the 2006 general elections and became a blockbuster in Italy.
4Prime Minister of Italy for 3 times: from May 10th, 1994, to January 17th, 1995, from June 11th, 2001, to May 17th, 2006, and from May 8th, 2008, to November 16th, 2011.
5Has his look-alike puppet in the French show Les guignols de l'info (1988).
6Quits A.C. Milan presidency to comply with the law that prohibits the country's premier from running private enterprises. (December 2004)
7Took 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.
8He 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).
9In 1994, when he entered politics, resigned all the offices he held in his companies, except the office of chairman of A.C. Milan S.p.A. (1st division soccer team). The 2 children he had with his first wife, Carla Elvira Lucia Dall'Oglio (born on September 12th, 1940), are now among with the top directors of his group: Marina Berlusconi is vice-chairman of Fininvest S.p.A. (general holding company of Berlusconi's group) and Pier Silvio Berlusconi is vice-chairman of the Mediaset Group and chairman and chief executive of R.T.I.
10He was nicknamed "Il Cavaliere" ("The Knight") because on June 2nd, 1977 he became the youngest member of the Ordine Cavalleresco al Merito del Lavoro, an Italian order of knighthood reserved to entrepreneurs. He has given up this honor in 2014.
11In 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!".
