Silvio Berlusconi: Artists Mourn from Barbara D’Urso to Gianni Morandi


Tributes to Silvio Berlusconi

As television revolutionizes its programming, suspending ordinary programming to make way for talk shows and specials, the entertainment world is gathering around Silvio Berlusconi, expressing their grief for the death of the Cavaliere through social media. Among the first to do so was Barbara D’Urso, who chose to share an intimate memory of the President on Instagram, who passed away at the age of 86 due to leukemia he had been living with for some time: “Thank you for welcoming me into your first TV 45 years ago, for always appreciating me, for your kind ways. I remember your enthusiasm, contagious and disruptive, when you called us to a meeting at Milan 2, where we saw the future of television, which you had intuited before anyone else. You were never banal, you were always very close to your family. And as I have always told you, I learned a lot watching you at work in those years,” writes D’Urso. “I was proud when I heard not long ago that you defined me as a woman with a velvet smile and steel balls, because in these few words there is all the professional affection you have never failed to show me. I will never forget you. Goodbye Silvio.”

Simona Ventura and Lorella Cuccarini

Simona Ventura and Lorella Cuccarini have also done the same. “President, I owe you so much. You have contributed to changing the course of my life and my career,” Lorella writes, recalling the phone call the Cavaliere made to congratulate her after the first episode of Buona Domenica in 1991. “His yes to Trenta Ore per la Vita gave us the opportunity to realize important projects for the benefit of all. He was a special man: capable, acute, respectful and extremely nice. Thank you President. Goodbye. A sincere hug to all his family.”

Alfonso Signorini

Together with her, the director and presenter Alfonso Signorini: “Today I want to remember you like this. In the joy of my home, between many laughs, a good glass of wine and the affections of a life. With you I lose a second father, that father that you promised me you would be when I lost mine. You kept that promise, until the end. Thank you President. Always with you.”
