JUST in time for Christmas, an album of Neapolitan love songs written by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi is about to warble its way onto the airwaves.
The CD entitled Il Vero Amore (The True Love), will be released November 22 featuring songs written by Berlusconi, a former cruise-ship singer.
It will be performed by the singer Mariano Apicella, ANSA news agency reported.
Berlusconi has not had much to croon about lately, given that he resigned under pressure at the weekend to make way for a new government amid a national debt crisis.
ANSA reported there was speculation the album, originally scheduled for September release, had been deliberately delayed for political reasons.
But Apicella said that was “nonsense” and the delay was “purely for technical reasons”.
