When the disgraced former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi expressed a wish to get a director to make a film on his life, he definitely wouldn't have had Rocco Siffredi on his mind!

But the Italian porn actor and director has expressed his desire to do the same. CS brings to you some interesting tit-bits from Berlusconi’s very colourful life:

>> After dominating Italy’s politics for 17 long years, Berlusconi resigned as the country’s Prime Minister in November 2011 after he lost his majority amid an acute debt crisis.

>> In January 2011, the story broke out about Berlusconi paying El Mahroug, a teenager at the time, for sex.

>> Around the same time, he made headlines for his famous bunga-bunga parties.

>> During a live television show in October 2009, Berlusconi called one of his ex-ministers ‘more beautiful than intelligent’. Thousands of offended women signed a petition stating ‘This man offends us. Stop him.’

>> Berlusconi’s wife, Veronica Lario, split with him in February 2007, after he was caught flirting with former showgirl turned equal opportunities minister Mara Carfagna.

>> A video was released on the Internet that shows Berlusconi making ‘humping’ gestures behind a police woman.

>> In September 2007, an Italian newspaper claimed to have acquired a taped conversation between him and an escort named Patrizia D’Addario, where the PM supposedly tells her to wait for him in bed.
