Scotland-Italy Six Nations rugby match on 17 March.
Italy will face Scotland in the Six Nations rugby union championship at Rome's Olympic Stadium at 13.30 on 17 March.
The 19th edition of the annual Six Nations – which is contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales – kicked off on 3 February and finishes on 17 March, St Patrick's Day.
Rugby fans in Rome will have the opportunity to combine St Patrick's Day celebrations with the free-entry Festa di S. Patrizio at the sporting complex Tre Fontane from midday on Saturday 17 March until the wee hours that night. In addition to screening the three final Six Nations games: Italy-Scotland (13.30), England-Ireland (15.45) and Wales-France (18.00) on a large-screen, there will be "rivers of beer" and live music. The sports ground is located on Via delle Tre Fontane 5, about 200m from EUR Magliana metro station on the B Line. For details see Facebook event page.
Ticket holders of the Italy-Scotland game will also be entitled to free admission for two people to around 25 state and city museums in Rome during the match weekend, thanks to the IV Tempo Rugby e Cultura initiative.
The Italy-Scotland game will be the second Six Nations rugby match played in Rome after defending champions England beat Italy 46-15 on 19 February.
