Italy coach Jacques Brunel has made two changes to his side for Saturday's Test against Australia in Florence.
Robert Barbieri returns to the back row, alongside captain Sergio Parisse and Alessandro Zanni with Simon Favaro returning to the bench.
Quintin Geldenhuys will replace Antonio Pavanello at lock to partner Francesco Minto in the scrum.
Brunel has retained the halfback pairing of Luciano Orquera and Edoardo Gori and made no other changes to the side which kept a tight rein on the All Blacks for the first hour in Rome last week.
Italy beat Tonga 28-23 in the first test and despite a promising start against New Zealand - the hosts trailed just 13-7 at half-time - the Azzurri ran out of steam as the fitter All Blacks scored a late flurry of tries.
Brunel replaced Nick Mallett as coach of Italy last year and has made playing more open, expansive rugby his number one objective.
Italy, who are traditionally strong in the scrum and set-pieces, produced an encouraging first-half display last week but later in the match were left lamenting several try-scoring chances that went begging.
A similar performance will be expected against the Wallabies, although Brunel will be hoping his side can match the Aussies' verve and pace up until the final whistle.
Australia beat England 20-14 at Twickenham last week and coach Robbie Deans has made a total of four changes to that side for the test in Florence.
Flanker Scott Higginbotham returns from a two-match ban, while scrumhalf Brett Sheehan will make his first Test start six years after his debut.
Drew Mitchell will swap roles with Digby Ioane, who returns to the bench after he returned from injury in a starting position at Twickenham, while Stephen Moore gains his first start since August, taking over from Tatafu Polota-Nau.
