In this photo taken on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016 Omar Hassan punches the canvas to paint his creations in his studio in Milan, Italy. When he creates art work, Omar Hassan doesn’t get out paint brushes. He gets out his boxing gloves. Hassan, a 29-year-old artist and boxer, has combined his two passions, with the goal to bring the disciplines closer. Hassan, born in Milan to an Italian mother and Egyptian father, creates the works by dipping his glove in paint, and punching the canvas stretched over cardboard to keep it from breaking. He calls the series ‘’Breaking Through Milano’’ His paintings sell from 8,000 to 40,000 euros, which he calls ‘’a great satisfaction, but not the goal.’’ (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni)

Silvio Berlusconi waves from his car as he leaves the Sacra Famiglia' community in Cesano Boscone, near Milan, Italy, Friday, June 20, 2014. Silvio Berlusconi’s legal challenge to a conviction of paying for sex with an under-age prostitute has opened as the ex-premier spent his seventh morning working with Alzheimer’s patients as part of a tax-fraud sentence. Berlusconi is appealing a conviction, seven-year prison sentence and lifetime ban from politics. He denies having had sex with the Moroccan teen at the center of the scandal that revealed racy, sex-fueled “bunga bunga” parties at the then-premier’s villa near Milan. The appeals trial, which opened Friday, is expected to continue for months. Berlusconi is performing community service four hours a week as part of his sentence for tax fraud. The four-year sentence was reduced to one year under a general amnesty, which can apply only to a first conviction. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)
