The call girl who claims to have slept with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will be guest of honour at an "I love Silvio" theme party in a renowned Paris nightclub, organisers said Tuesday.
Patrizia D'Addario, 42, is at the centre of a political and media storm in Italy since announcing that she had spent the night with the premier, recorded conversations with him and filmed his bedroom with her mobile phone.
Berlusconi insists he has never paid for sex, but conceded last week following D'Addario's claims that he "is not a saint".
Paris nightclub impresario Benjamin Patou told the reporters the escort had agreed to attend a party at the downtown Le Globo dancehall late Friday, where guests will wear Berlusconi pantomime masks and staff AC Milan strips.
"Since 1895, Le Globo has been a relaxed and friendly joint. We're standing by the spirit of the establishment by surfing on the tide of current affairs," Patou said.
"This business between Silvio Berlusconi and Patrizia D'Addario tickled us. We contacted her and she agreed immediately to come. It will be her first public appearance since the scandal," he added.
Le Globo began life as a lively brasserie frequented by Parisian artists, thinkers and bohemians. In 1905, Jean Jaures laid the basis of the French Socialist movement there in a series of public meetings.
In 1988, it was taken over by a trio of club promoters and now concentrates on spectacular late night parties.
