Elon Musk to take part in Italian PM’s political festival

Tuesday saw billionaire Elon Musk formally announce that he has accepted Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s offer to attend a political event this coming weekend in Rome.

Musk posted a “yes” response to a post on his owned social media site X, stating that he had “reportedly accepted” the invitation and included a link to an Italian newspaper story.

According to an article in the newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano, Musk will be a guest at “Atreju,” a four-day event that begins on Thursday and is hosted by the right-wing Brothers of Italy group led by Meloni.

The report added that Musk was expected to attend the event on Saturday.

Atreju’s X account had a post on Monday saying a “mysterious character” would take part in the gathering, which is being held this year in the ancient Roman Castel Sant’Angelo fortress near the Vatican.
