Italy's longest-serving former prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi died at 86.

According to the television network Mediaset, Silvio Berlusconi, the arrogant billionaire media mogul who was Italy’s longest-serving prime minister amid controversies over his sex-fueled parties and accusations of corruption, has passed away. He was 86.

Both supporters and detractors have praised the late Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The billionaire media tycoon and former owner of AC Milan made a successful political comeback in 2017 despite having a career marred by sex scandals, accusations of corruption, and a tax fraud conviction. He entered politics in the 1990s as the traditional right-wing parties fell apart at the head of his own Forza Italia party.

“Silvio Berlusconi was above all a fighter,” said Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, whose governing coalition includes Berlusconi’s Forza Italia as a junior member. He was a man who was never hesitant to stand up for what he believed in, and it was precisely this bravery and tenacity that made him among the most significant figures in Italian history.

Despite multiple scandals, Berlusconi seemed unassailable for a long time. In Italy’s delayed justice system, criminal cases were filed but were later dismissed when statutes of limitations expired or he won an appeal.

The former prime minister’s funeral will take place on Wednesday in Milan, a city that holds a special place in Berlusconi’s heart. It is also a day of national sorrow in Italy. Supporters gathered on Monday outside the Milan hospital where he passed away, wrapped in the flags of Forza Italia and AC Milan, which he controlled from 1986 and 2107.
