Italy coach Jacques Brunel has warned his side to expect a fierce Scotland backlash when they try to make it two wins out of two this Six Nations at Murrayfield on Saturday.
The Azzurri blew the Championship wide open with their stunning 23-18 victory over pre-tournament favourites France in Rome last weekend.
Scotland-Italy matches, as was the case last season, have often been the tournament's wooden-spoon decider.
But Italy, who in 2012 defeated the Scots 13-16 in Rome, will arrive in Edinburgh with loftier ambitions.
