Italy are celebrating a historic triumph at Murrayfield after Alessandro Troncon and the Azzurri claimed their first ever RBS 6 Nations victory away from home.
Having played extremely well at Twickenham against England two weeks ago, Pierre Berbizier's men took an early 20-0 lead and ultimately prevailed 37-17.
Troncon, who scored Italy's final try, was voted man of the match for the second consecutive game.
Sergio Parisse, who was outstanding for Italy, said: 'We have deserved this win.
'We have proved today that this team never gives up, it continues to battle until the final whistle.
'We have given our hearts today and this win is the reward for our efforts.
'I think a new 6 Nations tournament begins for us now.'
Another Italian who shone in Scotland was Mirco Bergamasco, who turned 24 on Friday and celebrated his birthday in style.
He said: 'I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present than this.
'This is a great victory for us, to have won our first (RBS 6 Nations) game away from home is an incredible feeling.
'Alessandro Troncon has had a great game and we've shown a lot of determination and quality against Scotland.'
Berbizier was extremely satisfied with his players' efforts.
He said: 'I want to thank my players, they have done a great job. They have done what we knew we had to do for 80 minutes, bravo!
'We knew that this result could have come our way, we hadn't had much luck in the past but today but we were fortunate.
'We have to be aware that the road is still long and we must continue to work in this manner.'
