Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi gestures as Economic minister Giulio Tremonti sits beside him, at the Chamber of Deputies in Rome, Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2010. Premier Silvio Berlusconi has survived a confidence vote in the Italian Senate, but another, riskier vote follows in the lower house. Berlusconi had been expected to win the Senate vote on a motion in support of the government that had been brought by his allies. The vote Tuesday was 162-135. The showdown in parliament follows a dramatic fallout with his one-time closest ally, Gianfranco Fini. The breakup potentially deprives Berlusconi of a majority in the lower house, and that vote later Tuesday will hang on a few undecided lawmakers. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)
