There seldom are men who influence a country in so many ways that they are going to be remembered for a long time after their reign. Italy has had many such men in history. In the post Mussolianan-era however, there was only one such man and he happens to be Silvio Berlusconi.
Berlusconi was the prime minister of Italy, a man who served the term longer period than any other Italian politician. But he wasn’t just that. Silvio Berlusconi also ventured into media, real estate and everything else that was possible. For someone who had such an influence over the country, Silvio Berlusconi also had quite a number of controversies associated with his reputation. The story of such a man would make for one really interesting piece of a read, at the very least.
Born to the middle class couple of Luigi and Rosa Berlusconi in the year 1936, Silvio had a very normal beginning. He studied law at the Statale University in Milan, something that laid a foundation to his future political life. Much before he ventured into politics, he was a businessman and a highly successful one at that. And a little before that, Silvio was also a musician, a side of him that a lot of people probably haven’t heard of.
