Silvio Berlusconi is reviving his musical career, just a week out of office.
The billionaire media mogul and three-time Italian premier released a new CD with long-time musical collaborator Mariano Apicella, a Neapolitan guitarist and singer, on Tuesday.
It's too early to say how sales are going. A tourist from Florence, Maria Grazia Merilli said she is certain that Berlusconi has "great experience" to write good love songs, but she still wouldn't buy it.
Berlusconi resigned November 12 after failing to come up with economic reforms that could persuade markets and European partners that Italy could escape the continent's debt crisis.
