The Berlusconi family does not control the company directly Instead, its shares are owned by 38 separate companies, all named 'Holding Italiana' followed by a number 1-38, most of which are in turn controlled by Berlusconi These 'Holding Italiane' have repeatedly come under investigation by the police for various financial and accounting irregularities, slush funds and money-laundering All of them were created at the end of the 1970s by covert associates of Berlusconi's and received significant investments several hundreds of millions of euros at today's value from still unknown sources Some of their liquidity was even deposited in cash Much of the documentation of that time relative to the early financial and banking operations of these companies has been lost, in one case in a fire

A report on those matters was commissioned by the general Dipartimento Investigativo Anti-Mafia Bureau of Anti-Mafia Investigation of Palermo in the 1990s from a finance expert working at the Bank of Italy, Francesco Giuffrida, to supplement the evidence in a tentative case against Berlusconi and associates for their alleged involvement with the Sicilian Mafia In 1998 the case was temporarily shelved because of lack of sufficient evidence to go to trial
