Silvio Berlusconi Died at the Age of 86

Silvio Berlusconi died this morning at the San Raffaele hospital in Milan.

The former prime minister was in the hospital for 45 days, from April to May, and then was hospitalized again last Friday. Berlusconi has been suffering from chronic myelomonocytic leukemia for a long time.

As the clinical picture deteriorated in the morning, the children Marina, Eleonora, Barbara, Pier Silvio, and brother Paolo arrived at the Milan hospital.

Silvio Berlusconi, born in 1936, was not only a successful entrepreneur, publisher and owner of first the Milanese and now the Monza football club, but also served three times as prime minister: from 1994 to 1995, from 2001 to 2006, and from 2008 to 2011.
