Sébastien de Boëldieu
The French Sébastien de Boëldieu (aka Sébastien Magnificat) is a CasaPound member, who appeared on the 1st Paneuropa Conference in Kyiv in 2017.1
According to a related blog, Magnificat is "well-known in Europe due to his effective tenure of the position in charge of international activities of CasaPound Italia... CasaPound Italia, representing 'neither left-wing, nor right-wing Fascism of the 21st century,' has a long history of igniting 'eurosynergies' by comprehensive social work and metapolitical activities on the Web, which continue attracting foreign volunteers to CPI from all over the world. Many of them end up moving there, since operating under the banner of CasaPound is naturally perceived as a contribution to the all-European cause and each particular nation of Europe. As the movement named after Ezra Pound, renowned American poet and sympathizer of the revolutionary potential of Italian fascism, first and foremost, in culture and economy, it has always illuminated the idea of pan-European solidarity, never homogenizing and only brightening each particular national character involved."1
On November 22, 2014, de Boëldieu appeared on a seminal conference of the European far right in Nanterre, France, organized by the Group Union Défense. It hosted foreign radical nationalists like Konstantinos Boviatsis of Golden Dawn (Greece), Hervé Van Laethem of the Belgian Nation, Jordi de la Fuente of the Spanish Republican Social Movement, and Gianluca Iannone of CasaPound. French guests included Roland Hélie of Synthèse National as well as Arnaud de Robert, the spokesperson of the Mouvement d'Action sociale.

In 2019, de Boëldieu received a group of the Ukrainian paramilitary Karpatska Sich, visiting the CasaPound headquarters in Rome. They were accompanied by the Ukrainian neo-Nazi figurehead Olena Semenyaka, who was given a tour through Rome by de Boëldieu.2
