Italy's former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi faces his latest trial starting today in Naples for allegedly bribing a senator to join his party's ranks, even as he attempts to retain a leading political role.

The billionaire tycoon, who lost his parliamentary immunity when he was ejected from the Senate last year over a tax fraud conviction, is not expected at the hearing and is not obliged to attend under Italian law.

A former Berlusconi aide, Valter Lavitola, is also on trial for being the alleged intermediary for the bribe.
