Rory Best will lead Ireland - the reigning Six Nations champions, while Italy will be without captain Sergio Parisse after he suffered concussion playing for his club Stade Francais at the weekend. 
Italy will be without Parisse
The absence of the 35-year-old Parisse, the most capped player in Italian rugby history, is seen as a major blow to Italy's team whose coach is Irishman Conor O'Shea.
Six Nations ticket-holders will have free admission to 16 Rome museums throughout the weekend, thanks to the IV Tempo Rugby e Cultura initiative.
