After three terms in office as the Italy's longest-serving post-war Prime Minister as well as one of the country’s richest men, Silvio Berlusconi confirmed on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 that he would resign. Silvio Berlusconi has conquered Italian politics for 17 years. He has been indicted over 20 times and currently stands trial for four different convictions.
Silvio Berlusconi has become notorious with his penchant for inviting young women to so-called bunga bunga sex parties. The Prime Minister used to be ordered to stand trial on charges of having sex with a 17-year-old girl named El Mahroug. Mr Berlusconi has also been charged with abuse of power in another case related to the same young women. The 75-year-old man has been dogged by a lot of sex scandals.
In 2009, the second wife of Silvio Berlusconi divorced him after discovering his ashamed relationship with 18-year-old model Noemi Letizia. The powerful man faced more scandals as pictures of topless women and a naked man at his villa on Sardinia were released. Silvio Berlusconi was also accused of paying several escorts to attend parties at his resident in Rome.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi used to talk about his active "social life" that “Last night I had a queue outside the door of the bedroom ... There were 11 ... I only did eight because I could not do it anymore.”
