He controls the media so why should he need a campaign manager?
People often think that Berlusconi is an idiot because he says a lot of controversial things but instead I think he's rather a malicious genius that never says just something without reason.
To proove my theory:
Here are some of his statements in the week before the 2008 elections:
Silvio Berlusconi assures a few weeks before the elections that there is no place in his coalition for persons with a criminal past or with mafia connections(an exception is made for political crimes) A few days before the elections, Berlusconi remembers one of his previous plans: submit judges at regular times to psychiatric examinations .
Under the previous government of Berlusconi, there were plans to change the juridical system radically and the above suggestion was one of the hot topics.
Silvio Berlusconi says that, in case of a possible victory, the as neutral regarded president Napolitano will have to make place for somebody of his coalition. Silvio's right hand and co founder of Forza Italia has another plan.
Senator Dell'Utri ( involved in numerous scandals and several times convicted in maffia related crimes) thinks that the history books about the role of the resistance in the second world war have to be changed.
He wants a review of who were the real heroes.
Silvio Berlusconi was at 25 april(national feast of the liberation) not present at the festivities like he has never been in the past. The late Enzo Biagi was a famous and everywhere respected journalist.
Enzo Biagi was one of the journalists that had to leave the RAI after the so-called 'Bulgarian diktat' of Silvio Berlusconi.
He was accused to make a criminal use of television.
Silvio Berlusconi claims until now that Enzo left the RAI out of free will
and that he did it for the money.
Senator Dell'Utri comes with another statement.
He defines a 'real' hero: Vittorio Mangano , part of the mafia, an impressing curriculum.
Vittorio worked several years for Berlusconi as 'horsekeeper' at his villa(although it seems that there were no horses…)
This man has been defined by the judge Paulo Borsellino as the maffia link to North Italy .
Borsellino died two months after this statement in one of Italies most brutal bomb attacks.
Dell'Utri says literally that 'Mangano was a hero because he never confessed under pressure compromising things about Berlusconi or Dell'Utri '.
Silvio Berlusconi confirms this the following day. Silvio Berlusconi gets a lot of critics because the business man and newspaper owner Ciarrapico , who is part of Berlusconi's party, is a convinced fascist and brings until now very proudly the fascist greetings.
Guiseppe Ciarrapico is not only an editor of very dubious press releases but has been convicted for numerous crimes.
Silvio Berlusconi says that the fascist simpaties of Ciarrapico are details and that this man is usefull to his party because he owns journals and magazines.
Guiseppe Ciarrapico, as well as Marcello Dell'Utri, and many others with a criminal past and accused of mafia connections are now senators in the Italian parliament… Some more info and references Silvio Berlusconi and the 'democratic' 2008 election campaign

Help Europe: Silvio Berlusconi is taking over the European media
Silvio Berlusconi (help·info) (born 29 September 1936) is an Italian politician, entrepreneur, media proprietor, and is expected to be appointed President of the Council of Ministers of Italy, a position he has held twice before. He is the leader of the Forza Italia political movement, a centre-right party he founded in 1993. Before the 2008 Italian general election he announced his intention to establish a new political party, People of Freedom, to be constituted by the merging of Forza Italia with the National Alliance party, and several other conservative parties later in 2008. His victory in the 2008 general election paved the way for a third term as prime minister. Berlusconi was born in Milan to a mother who killed herself when Berlusconi was just two years old; and a father who had a severe drinking problem and left the family to be with another man.
Marco Travaglio has: Played himself in "Quelli che... il calcio" in 1993. Played himself in "Citizen Berlusconi" in 2003. Played himself in "Shooting Silvio" in 2006. Played himself in "AnnoZero" in 2006. Played himself in "Silvio Forever" in 2011. Played himself in "Girlfriend in a Coma" in 2012. Performed in "Il venditore di medicine" in 2013.
