The photographer who took 5000 “uncomfortable” photos of Italian Prime
Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, keeps the pictures safe in Colombia, he
Antonello Zappadu took nearly 5000 photos of Berlusconi’s private parties in his summer mansion Villa Certosa on the island of Sardinia between 2007 and January 2009. Zappadu, who is married to a Colombian, decided to store the photos in Colombia after a judge prohibited the publication of the photos in Italy.
“There is a lot of interest in my photos after the revelations of the recordings made by the luxury prostitute [Berlusconi had sex with]. I don’t know exactly what the pictures contain. I don’t know the names of the individuals. I know there are photos of two women kissing and of a false wedding in which Berlusconi plays the leading part,” Zappadu said at a press conference in Rome on Wednesday.
“Perhaps my photos, compared to audio recordings, arouse more fear because you can see people and concrete situations,” the photographer added.
Zappadu lost his job as a photojournalist in a local newspaper when the sex scandal of Berlusconi was made public. After that he published together with his brother Salvatore Zappadu a book called ‘Berlusconi’s Nightmare’.
The Italian Prime Minister is involved in a sex scandal with a luxury prostitute. This Wednesday the prostitute published recordings of the night she spent with Berlusconi.
