ROME (Reuters) - The righthand man of media mogul Silvio Berlusconi visited the headquarters of Telecom Italia on Wednesday and met the company’s deputy chairman Giuseppe Recchi, a source said.

Telecom’s top shareholder is France’s Vivendi, which has also built up an almost 30 percent stake in Berlusconi’s Mediaset, in a move that has infuriated the former Italian prime minister.

“I have come for a visit,” Letta told a Reuters reporter who saw him leave the Telecom headquarters in Rome. He gave no further details. A source told Reuters Letta had seen Recchi, whom he has known for some time.
