Italy fly-half Andrea Scanavacca has revealed the Azzurri celebrated for three days after beating Scotland at Murrayfield.
Confidence is high within the Italy camp after last weekend's historic victory over Scotland at Murrayfield - their first success away from home in RBS 6 Nations history.
The Azzurri host winless Wales on March 10, Ireland a week later at the Stadio Flaminio in Rome and Scanavacca is predicting more upsets.
'We had three days of celebrations after our achievement in Scotland,' Scanavacca said.
'It was a huge success for us and it does give you a big morale boost for the forthcoming games.
'We know that it's not going to be an easy game against Wales or Ireland but we want to confirm our current form.'
Pierre Berbizier's men had already given an inspiring performance at Twickenham against England two weeks ago before beating Scotland 37-17 at Murrayfield.
Both games showed a vast improvement on their dismal start to the competition, a 39-3 home defeat against defending champions France.
'We were really unlucky against France,' admitted Scanavacca.
'We watched the game on video a couple of times. We made four mistakes and we paid a high price.'
It wasn't the best return to the Azzurri team for Scanavacca either. He sustained a rib injury only six minutes into the game.
'It was hard,' he said. 'I earned a starting place against France, missed a penalty conversion and I got injured.
'It was certainly the most difficult week for me, I thought I had lost another opportunity to prove my worth in the national team.'
Scanavacca did recover and started against England and Scotland.
'I have to thank Berbizier for his vote of confidence,' he said. 'Each game you play gives you more self-belief and it allows you to play with more calmness.'
