Oscar winner Benigni 'hates' Berlusconi

Rome, June 12 - Oscar winner Roberto Benigni, whose 1997 film "La vita e' bella" (Life is Beautiful) won three Academy Awards, has unleashed a humurous jibe at Silvio Berlusconi, saying he had a "wonderful relationship of platonic hatred" with the former premier.

"You know, I have always had a wonderful relationship with Berlusconi, a platonic hatred and, as a comic, have feelings of gratitude towards him," Benigni said at an event in Florence.

Benigni was presenting his summer recitations of parts of "The Divine Comedy" in a popular one-man show called "Tutto Dante" (All Dante).
