Scrub a dub dub
Mr Berlusconi underwent liposuction at a Swiss clinic in 2004, and a clinic employee gave the discarded fat to Swiss artist Gianni Motti, a statement from Zurich’s Migros Museum of Contemporary Art said
The off-white soap, which is the size of a conventional bar, will be exhibited until November 28 in its first public display since being purchased by a private collector in 2005. The clinic has consistently denied the artist’s claims about the origin of the fat.
The name of the work is a reference to Italy’s “Clean Hands” campaign, a judicial investigation into political corruption in the 1990s.
