It’s perhaps not such a surprise that an Italian woman would make it into the Forbes “richest heiress to be” list – and the fact that the Italian woman is Marina Berlusconi, Italian prime minister and media mogul Silvio Berlusconi’s daughter, is likely to be a banal result for most Italians.
Marina Berlusconi is the chair of Mondadori publishers, Italy’s largest book and magazine publisher, and also chairs her father’s Fininvest Group.
This makes her one of the women who is already well positioned to inherit the company fortune, as she already has significant business interests.
If the 9.
4 billion USD of Marina’s possible inheritance sounds impressive, you need to know that she is “only” second last out of 10 on the list.
The first three women are all heiresses to Indian fortunes with Vanisha Mittal Bhatia, daughter of Lakshmi Mittal, first on the list.
