Berlusconi celebrates “symbolic wedding” with 32-year-old
Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and his 53-year-old partner Marta Fascina celebrated a “symbolic wedding” on Saturday.
(dpa) A spokesman for Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party confirmed the festival on Saturday. For the celebration in a villa near the northern Italian city of Monza, the 85-year-old northern Italian and his 32-year-old partner invited around 60 guests, as reported by several media. Among those invited were Berlusconi’s brother, four of his five children and party friends of his co-governing Forza Italia.
The twice-divorced Berlusconi and the Forza Italia MP are said to have been a couple for more than two years. They wanted to celebrate their relationship with the party, but it was not a civil or church wedding, the reports said.
Berlusconi is still known to many for his “Bunga-Bunga parties”. The politician and entrepreneur, who has been convicted several times, repeatedly makes headlines, most recently at the beginning of this year with his candidacy for the office of Italian President. Before the election, however, he withdrew from the race. In the end, Sergio Mattarella was elected for a second term.
