Gianni Letta talks to Silvio Berlusconi on the phone to make sure of his conditions and is on speakerphone with the president of Forza Italia just as ANSA asks him on another line to get news on the state of health of the former prime minister.
On the phone, the leader of Fi can be heard saying goodbye before ending the conversation.
Letta then closes the conversation with ANSA with a laconic: "He's fine".
"It's not time for crocodiles, President Berlusconi will bury us": Senator Licia Ronzulli said this as she left the San Raffaele hospital in Milan where the Forza Itala leader has been hospitalized for a few days. "An inflammatory picture is being resolved that required hospitalization," he said.
Licia Ronzulli has denied a flurry of uncontrolled news according to which the leader of Forza Italia was even dying.
Rumors already circulated yesterday evening, even among parliamentary groups, which had greatly alarmed the entire political and journalistic landscape.
At lunchtime the words of Matteo Salvini ("He is not very well, but he will get out of it") had reassured but not entirely about the medical situation of the Knight.
But then, the clear words of Licia Ronzulli.
And finally those of the former prime minister's physician, Alberto Zangrillo, on twitter: "Every working day at San Raffaele is very demanding. ALL my patients are fine. Get over it."
"Silvio Berlusconi will be discharged in these days," said Ronzulli.
"I just talked to Berlusconi. On behalf of all Forza Italia, I wished him a speedy recovery." Antonio Tajani, National Coordinator of Forza Italia, writes on Twitter.
