L'entrée en politique d'un homme d'affaires. Silvio Berlusconi et la création de Forza Italia (juin 1993-mars 1994)

Abstract : Berlusconi's entrance into politics, in January 1994, was a turning point in Italian politics. He mobilized indeed original resources in order to assert his leadership on the new rightwing coalition, which was victorious at the general elections in March. He advanced his own status of entrepreneur and outsider in order to differentiate himself from the political establishment and the traditional political parties. He created a totally new party (Forza Italia) using the organizational and financial resources, the professional expertise in management, the social capital and the grassroots supports at the local level, of its own enterprises. Based on accounts and testimonies of individuals involved in the creation of Forza Italia, the paper examines the conditions and the modalities of the conversion of entrepreneurial resources into political resources. It also discusses the way in which the peculiarity of Berlusconi's political career contributes to make uncertain and controversial his political legitimacy.
