Son of the former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, Pier Silvio Berlusconi is an Italian business magnate and the heir to the infamous Berlusconi fortune worth $8 billion. His company Mediaset is the largest commercial broadcaster in Italy.
The Italian commercial television network was founded by his father and is now controlled by the Berlusconi family through Fininvest.
It also owns a controlling stake in the largest TV network in Spain, MEC, earning it more than $3.39 billion in revenue.
The company’s Italian channels include Canale 5, Italia 1, Rete 4, Boing, and Cartoonito.
Quite unlike his father, Pier maintains a low profile and immerses himself in his work. There was, however, a single controversy over alleged tax evasion for which Pier Berlusconi was charged and sentenced to jail for 14 months. However, the decision was overturned by the appellate court.Tags: TV
