Italian PM Draghi to meet Facebook founder and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg


Italy’s prime minister Mario Draghi is to hold a meeting in Rome with Facebook founder and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday, 5 May.

According to reports, the meeting will reportedly take place in government offices at Palazzo Chigi at 10.00.


After being spotted on the streets of Siena on Monday, Zuckerberg also travelled to Turin and Milan, where he met EssilorLuxottica chairman Leonardo Del Vecchio on Wednesday.

The pair discussed the partnership between Meta and the Italian-French eyewear giant to develop “plans for new smart glasses”, Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.

Thursday’s meeting with Draghi will be Zuckerberg’s second official visit to an Italian prime minister after his 2016 encounter with then-premier Matteo Renzi.
