Berlusconi returns to public wearing Putin’s present

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi chose to wear a jacket with the Russian coat-of-arms during his first public appearance since being attacked in December.

The jacket is a memento from his visit to Russia in October and was a gift from Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Berlusconi looked healthy and cheerful despite the attack that left him with a fractured nose and broken teeth. He was shopping in the French Riviera with his daughter Marina.
