Love him or hate him, one thing is for sure: everyone in Italy has an opinion about Milan's owner, Silvio Berlusconi. The Italian businessman who has served three terms as the Italian Prime Minister has one unique, albeit odd trait - being the owner of one of the most important football teams in the world.

Rarely have we seen a man with such an important political connotation also try and lead a team to European glory. It makes for an interesting story line, many intertwined subplots, and plenty of headlines in newspapers around the world.

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions for Milanisti throughout the world. We endured Antonio Cassano's heart wrenching (literally) sickness, we've witnessed Silvio Berlusconi's tumultuous time as the Italian Prime Minister come to an expected end, and we've been entertained by Milan's impressive five-match winning streak in Serie A, capitalized by a flurry of goals in each game.

Every positive piece of news is weighed down by a negative one. Milan have now qualified in the Champions League group stage, and the game against Barcelona at the San Siro will be decisive to see which of the two sides comes out in first place.

Matteo Bonetti Born and raised just a few kilometers away from The San Siro, Matteo Bonetti has been watching the Rossoneri ever since childhood. The passion was instilled by a family whose fanaticism for the team dates back to the early 1900's. Instead of bursting with an obscenity laden tirade, or turning any object around him into a projectile weapon after a disappointing Milan outing, Matteo can now channel his emotions into a more effective, and most importantly: safe, manner - writing on a global platform. He is a young journalist whose grandfather was the Vice President of Milan nearly four decades ago. E-mail him:, and follow him on twitter: @TheMilanGuy
