Prop Simone Ferrari wants Italy to build on the positives they’ve taken from their three Championships games so far against Wales this weekend.
Conor O’Shea’s side have been beaten by England, Ireland and France in the NatWest 6 Nations to date and travel to Cardiff in Round Four on Sunday.
And the Benetton prop thinks more clinical finishing can pay dividends at Principality Stadium as the Italians go in search of their first points of the Championship.

“We want to redeem the defeat against France. In every game we played, despite the result, there are positive aspects,” he said.
“We have to start from those and keep the concentration as high as possible to be more precise, avoiding making mistakes.
“In the last game there was a time when we did not take advantage of the work done in the attack.
“It is not an excuse, we have our responsibilities and we know that we have to work hard to compete at these levels.
“Wales is a team that attacks a lot in speed. We will have to be good at limiting their initiatives and taking advantage of the opportunities in our favour.”
Scrum-half Marcello Violi also spoke to the media following Italy’s training session on Tuesday and is desperate to help his side bounce back from defeat against France.
The Italians trailed by just four points at the break in Marseille before two second-half tries for France earned them a 34-17 victory – their first under Jacques Brunel.
“Everyone’s goal is to redeem us immediately,” Violi explained.
“In some phases we lacked that extra bit of malice that compromised some phases of the game and, consequently, also the result in Marseille.
“At these levels the attention must always be maximum. The game against Wales will certainly be very tough. They will want to redeem the defeat against Ireland in front of their supporters.”
