Rome - Mauro Bergamasco on Wednesday earned a recall to the Italian Six Nations side to take on England at Twickenham on Saturday.
The 35-year-old Zebre stalwart will win his 101st cap when he takes over at flanker from Alessandro Zanni, who was injured in last weekend's 26-3 loss to Ireland in the tournament's opener.
Another veteran brought back into the starting XV is 34-year-old Marco Bortolami, who will win his 111th cap in the second-row alongside George Biagi following an injury to Quintin Geldenhuys.
Coach Jacques Brunel, disappointed by the performance against the reigning Six Nations champion Irish, in all made six changes to his lineup.
Luke McLean switches from wing to full-back in place of Andrea Masi who takes over at centre from Michele Campagnaro.
Apart from Bergamasco and Bortolami, the new faces are Giovanbattista Venditti on the wing in place of McLean and loose-head prop Alberto De Marchi taking over from Matias Aguero.
