President Putin’s daughters are on vacation with Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi
Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi, who likes to boast of his friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is now receiving Putin's daughters: 18-year-old Masha and 17-year-old Katya. At the same time, his favourite singer, Mariano Apicella, is also staying with him.
The Russian president himself is expected to arrive at the end of this month, who will travel to Sardinia for Asnara Berlusconi's wedding, and then to Madrid. So far, the Italian Prime Minister's residence La Certosa (The Still Abode) does not correspond with its name.
To receive guests, the prime minister’s daughter Barbara Berlusconi, who is of the same age as Putin’s daughters, arrived from Australia. Special dishes are being prepared for the girls, while Berlusconi himself eats separately, because he wants to lose about 10 kg before his daughter’s wedding.
In the evenings, the girls visit different night clubs situated between Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, accompanied with the numerous security guards assigned to the resident daughters.
Actually, Katya, Masha, Barbara, and Mariano Apicella not only relax, they are also working for the consolidation of Russian-Italian relationships, through realizing the principles of personal diplomacy.
