Rome, December 17 - Former Italian premier Silvio
Berlusconi says his young fiancee' is as beautiful on the inside
as she is on the surface.
Berlusconi announced Sunday that he intends to wed for the
third time, and is engaged to Naples-born Francesca Pascale, a
woman almost 50 years his junior.
The former premier, who is trying to resuscitate his
political career while fending off charges of paying for sex
with an underage prostitute, says Pascale makes him feel less
lonely.
"Her name is Francesca, and she is a beautiful girl on the
outside but even more beautiful inside," the 76-year-old
Berlusconi said in announcing his engagement.
He said he has known Pascale, 27, for seven years as she
rose through his political organization, the People of Freedom
(PdL) party.
In his televised announcement, Berlusconi made no mention
of the fact that he is still officially married to his second
wife Veronica Lario, although the pair have been legally
separated since May 2010 and are set to obtain a divorce.
She left him in 2008, complaining about the then-premier's
dalliances with much younger women.
These often allegedly occurred at his famous "bunga-bunga"
parties, including those involving Karima 'Ruby' El Mahroug, who
was fined 500 euros by a court Monday for failing to appear at
Berlusconi's trial.
El Mahroug is the underage Moroccan runaway, nightclub
dancer, and alleged prostitute the ex-premier is accused of
having sex with.
A decision in the case - in which Berlusconi is also charged
with abuse of power for phoning police to have El Mahroug
released on an unrelated theft claim - has been set for early
February, shortly before a national Italian election is
expected.
Berlusconi has recently said he is intending to campaign
for re-election in that vote.
His new fiancee' shares his political vision, the
ex-premier said.
After working as a shop assistant Pascale served as a
provincial councillor in Berlusconi's PdL party in Naples until
she stepped down in July.
