This three-day event showcases a vast range of Scotland's whisky, from well-known to rare, and includes tastings and masterclasses.
The festival involves traditional Scottish fare such as shortbread, salmon and jams displayed alongside Italian delicacies, and a novelty this year will see Scottish whisky offered with Indian cuisine from Rome's Maharajah restaurant.
Visitors can also enjoy a Scottish beer or two while listening to Scottish and Irish music provided by folk band Be Folk.
The event takes place at the Aranciera di S. Sisto, Via Valle delle Came 11 from 15-16 March, before moving to the Teatro Ambra, P.zza Giovanni da Triora 15, on 17 March.
The festival enjoys the patronage of the British Embassy in Rome.
