Berlusconi family priest jailed for sex attack

Father Gabriel Corsani, a friend of the Berlusconi family, was sentenced to three years in prison on Monday after being convicted of sexual assault.


Corsani was treasurer of the Salesian College of Pavia, in north-east Italy, for 45 years.

He was convicted of sexual assault on a 20-year-old man, a student at the college at the time of the attack, in a hotel room in 2007.

Father Corsani was the first priest to rush to the house of Rosa Bossa Berlusconi, the mother of former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi, upon news of her death in 2008.

He also delivered the funeral mass for Berlusconi’s late sister, Maria Antonietta.
