Italian Prime Minister and noted ladies man Silvio Berlusconi looked to be all smiles before his big speech on Italy’s economy yesterday, The Daily Mail reports.
In the pictures below, Berlusconi is shown giggling with Michaela Biancofiore, a member of Parliament in Berlusconi’s party. Biancofiore is a long-time Berlusconi supporter, and has said that Berlusconi “nurtured her politically.”
This is not the first set of flirtatious Berlusconi/Biancofiore pictures — Biancofore celebrated her birthday with Berlusconi, and he was allegedly amused when she presented him a cake with a (really bizarre) cartoon of them on it.
Berlusconi had already been in hot water over new claims he held another of his infamous “bunga bunga” parties last week. As we’ve noted, all this behaviour doesn’t exactly make it look like Berlusconi is taking the Italian crisis seriously.
Here’s the pics:
