The Minister of Infrastructure and Transport had asked the world’s richest man to invest and believe in Italy
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX and recently number one on Twitter, responds to the appeal of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Matteo Salvini: “I look forward to meeting him,” chirps Musk.
The exchange stems from Salvini’s words, spoken a few days ago at a conference in Rome. The vice-premier had called Musk “one of the leading innovative geniuses: I would like him to be able to work more with Italy and in Italy since, as Mit, I will like to create a pole to attract foreign investment and capital that will become a reference point for innovation.” Even more explicitly, he had invited Musk to invest and believe in our country. Phrases bounced in the national and international press, echoed by sites and social media. Thus Musk was able to comment on an article reporting Salvini’s statements, “Nice of him. I look forward to meeting him,” the supermanager commented.
In the night Salvini re-tweeted the post, responding that “It would be a pleasure and an honor.” “For you the doors of my ministry are always open,” the League leader closed.
