Silvio Berlusconi has been involved in a huge number of shocking events in recent years, whether it’s his notorious “bunga bunga” sex parties, his links to questionable people, or the time he was attacked by a crazed man with a plastic souvenir.

Given that he may be on his way out (by most people’s estimates at least), we thought it was time to look back over his colourful life.

These photos, published in Spanish paper El Pais, gave the world it's first glimpse of Berlusconi's notorious 'bunga bunga'

Then, earlier this year, prosecutors in Milan released more photos that showed more life inside the 'bunga bunga' parties

One guest, Barbara Guerra, 32, was an Italian reality TV star and a former girlfriend of Manchester City's Mario Balotelli

Incidentally, this woman, Nicole Minetti, was accused of organising prostitutes for Berlusconi. She was formerly his dental hygienist.

He was also photographed flirting with Angela Sozio, a former reality tv contestant notorious for her nudity

These realty-TV star twins were found to have photos of Berlusconi on their computer, as well as other valuable items seemingly given as gifts.

rumours swirled when Berlusconi attended Noemi Letizia's 18th birthday party. Was she another young lover? Or maybe a love-child?

And minutes before a key speech this summer, Berlusconi was photographed flirting with 'Berlusconi babe' party member Michaela Biancofiore

Indeed, many have wondered whether Berlusconi has let his love of women affect his political choices. Here is Mara Carfagna, a former topless model who has been a controversial Minister for Equal Opportunities

Here's another woman, Eleonora Gaggioli, he suggested represent Italy in the European Parliament (she wasn't elected).

His choice of male friends has sometimes been questionable too...

In 2009 Berlusconi was left bloody and bruised when a man attacked him with a plastic souvenir. After the attack he proudly showed his face to the crowd in an image that became one of the most defining of his career.

But through it all, Berlusconi never seemed to care.
