3 Berlusconi's business career began in construction early in the 1960s. After a couple of successful projects, he effected in the latter part of that decade the construction of Milano 2, a huge residential project of about 10,500 apartments, which he eventually built in Segrate, an eastern suburb of Milan. Berlusconi first entered the media world in 1973 by setting up a small cable television company, Telemilano, to service units built on his Segrate properties. It began transmitting in September the following year. After buying two further channels, Berlusconi relocated the station to central Milan in 1977 and began broadcasting over the airwaves. As he founded his Forza Italia party and entered politics, Berlusconi expressed his support for "freedom, the individual, family, enterprise, Italian tradition, Christian tradition and love for weaker people" and his intention to combat fiscal, judicial and bureaucratic oppression of Italians.

4 In 1965, he married Carla Elvira Dall'Oglio two children: Maria Elvira, better known as Marina (born 1966), and Pier Silvio (b. 1969).Maria ElviraPier Silvio His father Luigi (1908–1989) was a bank employee, and his mother, Rosa Bossi (1911–2008), a housewife.

5 By 1980, Berlusconi had established a relationship with Veronica Lario (born Miriam Bartolini), with whom he subsequently had three children: Barbara (b. 1984), Eleonora (b. 1986) and Luigi (b. 1988) He was divorced from Dall'Oglio in 1985, and married Lario in At this time, Berlusconi was a well-known entrepreneur, and his wedding was a notable social event.

8 In 1978 Berlusconi founded his first media group, Fininvest, and joined Propaganda 2 masonic lodge. In the five years leading up to 1983 he earned some 113 billion Italian liras (€58.3 million). The funding sources are still unknown because of the complex system of holding companies that makes them impossible to trace, despite investigations conducted by various state attorneys. Fininvest soon expanded into a country-wide network of local TV stations which had similar programming, forming, in effect, a single national network. Berlusconi was assisted in his successful effort to create the first and only Italian commercial TV empire by his connections to Bettino Craxi, secretary-general of the Italian Socialist Party and also prime minister of Italy at that time, whose government passed, on 20 October 1984, an emergency decree legalising the nationwide transmissions made by Berlusconi's television stations.Italian Socialist Party

9 The outgoing Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, is well known for his blunt language - a tendency to make what one of his predecessors, Massimo D'Alema, described as "planetary gaffes". He want express good,but in politic you need a good perspective and the best words. "I am the Jesus Christ of politics. I am a patient victim, I put up with everyone, I sacrifice myself for everyone." "Mussolini never killed anyone. Mussolini used to send people on vacation in internal exile." "I trust the intelligence of the Italian people too much to think that there are so many pricks around who would vote against their own best interests." Berlusconi's loose tongue has often got him into trouble

10 He has a beautiful wife, but don't kid yourselves, he is well aware of his charm and his magnetism with the fairer sex. He has a beautiful wife, but don't kid yourselves, he is well aware of his charm and his magnetism with the fairer sex. Veronica Lario, the wife of the Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, is to ask for a divorce after a series of public disputes with her husband over the close attention he pays to younger women. Berlusconi is notorious for his, at times questionable, sence of humour. In later life he wrote AC Milan's anthem with the Italian music producer and pop singer Tony Renis and Forza Italia's anthem with the opera director Renato Serio. With the Neapolitan singer Mariano Apicella he wrote two Neapolitan song albums: Meglio 'na canzone in 2003 and L'ultimo amore in 2006.

11 According to Forbes, Berlusconi is Italy's third richest man, estimated to be worth $9.0 billion (US$) in 2010, owning assets in the fields of television, newspapers, publishing, cinema, finance, banking, insurance, and even sport.Berlusconi's main company, Mediaset, comprises three national television channels, which together cover approximately a half of the national television sector; and Publitalia, the leading Italian advertising and publicity agency.

12 The right man in the right job." "Out of love for Italy, I felt I had to save it from the left." "The best political leader in Europe and in the world."

13 In my opinion this italian businessman is very influence,but he has too many problems in business life and in his private life.He is a controversal person,but in the same time an important person,he is the Italian Prime Minister.He should think about his carrier and his family,because this things make him powerful man in society.
