#5 Gianluca Vacchi cheats death, has a superstar homecoming

One of Gianluca Vacchi's most amazing moments of 2016 was when he cheated death, and after that he returned home, landing in a helicopter in the most spectacular fashion we have ever seen.

We wrote about Gianluca Vacchi's brush with death in a previous article (which you can read here).

At the end of August, Gianluca Vacchi was hospitalized for "an attack of bacterium", which we suspect was some sort of infection, and he almost didn't make it.

It was only for the work of an excellent medical staff that allowed him to survive and return home safely.

But the way that Gianluca Vacchi returned to L'Ermita, his mansion in San Lazzaro, Bologna, was the real shock to us. With U2's Beautiful Day as a soundtrack, he landed in his private helicopter with his adoring staff all watching from the ground and cheering.

Some of them even started crying when they saw Gianluca Vacchi. You can watch here:

After Gianluca Vacchi and his girlfriend, Giorgia Gabriele, exit the helicopter they receive a warm welcome by some of their friends and security detail. Here they are inside the helicopter:

#4 Gianluca Vacchi's lavish, star-studded 49th birthday party

This year, 2016, was Gianluca Vacchi's 49th birthday. But he wasn't just gonna celebrated in a typical manner. Gianluca Vacchi's 49th involved a four-day blowout on the island of Sardegna.

Gianluca Vacchi started the festivities off relaxing on his sailboat with a couple of bikini-clad beauties.

To make sure nobody got hungry, he had a private sushi chef aboard.

Gianluca Vacchi then returned to his seaside mansion, Porto Cervo, where he spent the day relaxing in the sun by the pool, and of course showing us his dance moves.

In the evening, Gianluca Vacchi's mansion, nicknamed H2O, was turned into a giant club where he partied with his girlfriend and his friends until late in the night. Here's a video:
