Could Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg face off at Italy’s most iconic landmark?

On Thursday night, Musk tweeted out that his proposed fight against the Meta CEO may take place at the ancient Colosseum in Rome.

“Some chance fight happens in Colosseum,” he wrote.

The claim received some backup when TMZ reported that sources had said the Italian Minister of Culture reached out to Zuckerberg about staging the fight at the historic site.

Sources also told the outlet that both Musk and Zuckerberg would be happy to see the fight held at the Colosseum.

But in a statement, the office of the Ministry of Culture denied that they had invited the tech CEOs to fight at the iconic arena.

“There has been no formal contact from the ministry nor any written document, even if the news appears tasty it is unfounded,” the statement read.

They added, “If Zuckerberg and Musk wanted to perform in the Colosseum they would have to make a non-violent challenge.”
