To commemorate the 30-year anniversary of Silvio Berlusconi's ownership and presidency, AC Milan released this nostalgic video on their YouTube channel.

The players, along with CEO Adriano Galliani, Silvio, and his daughter Barbara, had a get-together at Milanello to celebrate the anniversary.

Under Berlusconi's leadership, Milan was transformed into one of the most successful clubs in football, winning a total of 28 trophies, including 7 European Cup/Champions League titles. Although Berlusconi's legacy has now become somewhat tainted, this video is testament to the greatness that Milan achieved under his reign. Happy Anniversary Silvio!
