London: A soap bar made out of the fat belonging to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been put on display in a Swiss museum.

Berlusconi underwent liposuction at a Swiss clinic in 2004, and a clinic employee gave the discarded fat to Swiss artist Gianni Motti, said a statement from Zurich’s Migros Museum of Contemporary Art.

The off-white soap, which is the size of a conventional bar, will be exhibited until November 28 in its first public display since being purchased by a private collector in 2005, reports the Telegraph.

However, the clinic has denied the claims about the origin of the fat.
