Rocco Siffredi says he aspires to work with the 77-year-old billionaire media tycoon, who has not commented on the invitation.

ROME – Italian porn superstar Rocco Siffredi said Friday that his dream is to make a sex film with former Italian prime minister and billionaire media tycoon Silvio Berlusconi.

Siffredi, 49, made the comment during a press event during which he revealed that he would not be one of the commentators for the upcoming season of Big Brother, which airs on one of the channels from Berlusconi's Mediaset television and cinema giant. Siffredi also said he would stop making his reality television program Ci pensa Rocco.

Berlusconi soon will have plenty of time on his hands. Last month he was stripped of his Senate seat, and in the coming weeks he is expected to face a ban from politics. In the wake of an August Supreme Court ruling finding him guilty of tax evasion and false accounting in connection with a series of Hollywood film deals, he is also expected to face a year of community service or house arrest. If Berlusconi serves house arrest it could be at Arcore, Berlusconi's main residence, near Milan. That is where Siffredi said he "dreams" of making the film with the 77-year-old tycoon.

Berlusconi is known for hosting "bunga bunga" sex parties, and in addition to his tax fraud conviction and other indictments ranging from abuse of power to bribery, he has been found guilty of paying an underage girl, former erotic dancer Karima el-Mahroug, for sex, though that conviction is under appeal.

Berlusconi, who has maintained his innocence in all the cases, has not commented on Siffredi's invitation.
