SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is currently in Rome to attend the Arteju political festival organised by Italian PM Georgia Meloni's Brother of Italy party.

As always, Musk's sidekick and his son X Æ A-Xii or Lil X, as he calls him, accompanied the billionaire to the festival. A video of the two is now going viral after the 3-year-old latched on to Musk's leg, refusing to leave the stage at the start of the event.


"I'll see you soon," Musk told X as the kid was taken away by one of the officials.

The video has garnered a lot of attention on social media where users are happy to see the father-son bond. "He loves his dad," said one user. "Lil x so cute, glued to dad," wrote another. 

Having always called himself a history buff, Musk is also sharing pictures from his trips to historic places in Rome.

Earlier today, he posted a video from the roof of the Pantheon, the ancient Roman temple which is the best preserved monument in Rome. He also visited a museum in Italy's capital with his little confidant.

The billionaire also met with Italian PM Meloni for the second time this year, the first being in June.

“Elon Musk's participation in Atreju was also an opportunity to discuss together the benefits and risks of artificial intelligence and the new perspectives linked to Starlink, the SpaceX satellite system. Thank you Elon for taking part in this very successful edition of our event,” Meloni wrote in a post on X.
