The technical director of Italy Women's rugby has revealed the squad for an upcoming training block.

Giovanni Raineri announced his list ahead of the meeting in Parma from 7th-10th March, as the Azzurre prepare for this year's Guinness Women's Six Nations.

The squad will then meet again on 19th March to prepare for their opening Championship match against England five days later at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Parma, which is now the home of the women's national team.

The difference with this latest gathering of players is the inclusion of Italy's England-based players, who were unable to participate in January's camp due to their Premiership commitments.
