Say whatever you want, but the man was fun. And Italian politics became just boring, after he decided to leave his post as Prime Minister few months ago.
His cabinet included a large number of women, an unusual choice for traditionally gender-imbalanced Italian politics. An example the Catholic Church should follow, abandoning not just the outdated custom of electing only male Popes, but also the hypocrisy of a never respected chastity. Mr.Berlusconi adamantly admitted not to be a saint: I am a man, not a saint — he said — and yes, I do commit sins. For the first time, Italy — if not the world — had an honest politician, not pretending to be something he is not.
Unfortunately honesty does not pay. We — humans — prefer fiction and lies to the crystalline truth served on our tables. So many did not appreciate Mr.Berlusconi, and rather prefer been fooled by those who claim to be the Nietzschean superman, than to recognize human weakness and moral ineptitude.
Enjoying his time
Mr.Berlusconi knew how to enjoy his time, had a fine taste for female beauty and a unique sense of humor. I have read somewhere that he owns also a football team, but since I am not passionate about sport, I have no clue about this topic.
I wonder what is he doing now, after retiring to private life. I imagine Mr.Berlusconi fishing on a lake with some close friends, taking long walks in the mountains, or maybe sailing through the ocean. All I can do, is to wish him joy and prosperity: I am sure he will not miss to realize all his dreams.
A photo gallery
Here is my favorite collection of pictures of Mr.Berlusconi.
I am sure you will enjoy them.
I should also state that I am not inferring nor suggesting any correlation between Mr.Berlusconi and the ladies whose pictures appear on this page. Their names appeared associated to Mr.Berlusconi name on various press articles in the last years, however if any of the interested people feels misrepresented by this blog, I would be more than happy to hear from them. And to remove and or correct any information here presented. (Just to be on the safe side!)
