Your question is important and I see that others have given wrong and generic aswer.
I'm italian and i live in italy so i can speak for italians people.
Italians DON'T like Silvio Berlusconi, we don't like and we are happy that is gone (now there is mario monti).
There is a small group of people that love Berlusconi, This group is composed of rich people or other political.
Berlusconi has deceived Italy, Italians have made a mistake and we are paying...
Now...talking about mario monti, He has been proposed as a savior...as a hero but the reality is that He has only put more taxes on taxes, nowadays italy is in deep **** and certainly we don't like silvio berlusconi, this is sure ;)
Sorry for my bad english, i hope to go to canada, l really like canada and canadian.
