Zizi Abdel Ghaffar –
Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has bequeathed €100 million to his life companion, Marta Fascina.
In addition to Fascina, who is a member of the parliament representing the “Forza Italia” party and was Berlusconi’s last partner, €100 million will also go to Berlusconi’s younger brother, Paolo. Entrepreneur and long-time associate of the former Prime Minister, Marcello Dell’Utri, will receive €30 million.
Berlusconi left 53% of the family holding company, Fininvest, to his two eldest children from his first wife, Carla Elvira Lucia Dall’Olio. Pier Silvio and Marina have inherited equal shares.
According to a statement from Fininvest, “It is stated in the will that no person shall have indirect or sole control over Fininvest SpA, which was previously exercised by Berlusconi himself.”
On June 9, Berlusconi was admitted to the San Raffaele clinic in Milan, where he passed away on June 12 at the age of 86. Marta Fascina spent his final days with him in the hospital. In March 2022, Berlusconi symbolically married Fascina.
