Berlusconi shops for ‘daring’ nudes, superman ObamaJanuary 7th, 2010 - 6:26 pm ICT by IANS
Paris, Jan 7 (DPA) Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi - known as a fan of beautiful women - has bought four erotic bronze nudes as well as a print of US President Obama pictured as Superman during a trip to the Cote d’Azur, gallery spokesman Loic Deltour said.
“These are slightly daring, let’s say sensual nudes,” Deltour, spokesman for the gallery Vladimir Rustonoff in Saint-Paul-Valence, was quoted as saying by the newspaper Le Parisien.
The statuettes and the Obama lithograph which was created by US artist Brainwash, had set the prime minister back by several thousand euros Wednesday.
Berlusconi was visiting the village together with his daughter amid tight security by both Italian and French officials, following December’s attack on him. A man hit him then with a small souvenir model of Milan Cathedral, cutting his lip and breaking his two front teeth, necessitating hospitalisation for several days.
