Italy: Mussolini 'sex video offered to Berlusconi'

Rome, 30 Nov. (AKI) - A sex video purportedly showing Alessandra Mussolini, granddaughter of Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, was reportedly offered to Palazzo Chigi, the office of prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. A report published in the Italian media on Monday said the video was offered for one million euros.

Alessandra Mussolini is an MP for Berlusconi's People of Freedom party or PdL.

Palazzo Chigi, located in the centre of Rome, is where the cabinet or council of ministers, led by Berlusconi meets.

Last week, the Italian daily Il Giornale - owned by the Berlusconi family - reported that it had been offered the video of Mussolini having sex with the leader of a small extreme right-wing party, Roberto Fiore, by a security camera at the headquarters of Berlusconi's defunct Forza Italia party in Rome.

The daily refused to buy the video, saying they weren't even interested in seeing it.

Fiore and Mussolini used to be political allies in the former far-right group called Alternativa Sociale, or Social Alternative, through which Mussolini was elected to the European Parliament in 2004.

Mussolini, a mother of three, called the existence of the video a 'ridiculous hoax' spread by an 'unreliable source'.

On Monday, Berlusconi's PdL party leader at the Italian senate, Fabrizio Cicchitto, said he wanted an end to the media attacks against Mussolini.

"Enough with the media attack against Alessandra Mussolini. What's happening is absolutely indecent and uncivil," said Cicchitto.

Reports about the Mussolini video surfaced a month after the former governor of the Lazio region Piero Marrazzo resigned from his post after a video emerged that apparently showed him with a transsexual prostitute.

Later, reports surfaced about another, longer and allegedly more compromising video of Marrazzo with cocaine.
