Silvio's girl calm as dad brews storm
HER father may be about to press the nuclear button for the Italian government, but Silvio Berlusconi's daughter, Barbara, is the very picture of tranquility.
She is seen here during a coffee break at the annual Italian business and political conference in Cernobbio. Meanwhile, in Milan, there were reports that Berlusconi had prepared a video message that could announce a decision to bring down Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta's coalition government. President Giorgio Napolitano, who appointed Mr Letta in April, warned of the "serious risks" the government's fall would bring to Italy.
The announcement of the video came ahead of a meeting this Monday of a special senate committee that will vote on whether to strip Berlusconi of his seat in parliament after he received a four-year jail sentence for tax fraud.
