Having won three games from three securing a Triple Crown in the process, has created the buzz that another Grand Slam is within reach for Jenkins and co, but the Cardiff Blues prop is focussed purely on the Azzurri.
"There is a lot of expectation, and we have to deal with that mentally and emotionally,” said Jenkins.
"The 2005 [Grand Slam] was a completely different mentality, and the game has changed a lot.
"The 2008 one was similar, but there are a lot more younger players now, which benefits us with the energy and fitness levels they've got.
"We are three wins from three, and you can't ask for any more. Everyone in the public is talking about the Grand Slam, but as a player you just look forward to the next game.
"Italy is a big challenge for us - they are always tough and they are the only thing we are concentrating on.”
The clash against Jacques Brunel’s troops also presents Jenkins with a chance to break his captaincy duck – having lost all three of the games he has led out his teammates.
The first was against South Africa in 2007 but the British and Irish Lion is desperate for that to change.
He added: "That was the first thing I thought of when [Wales coach Warren Gatland] asked me - to break that duck.
"There are a lot of leaders in the team and squad, and I haven't really done too much different to what I have been doing the last couple of weeks but it makes a massive difference when you are winning games.”
