Italy have been on the road for their opening two fixtures of the Championship and lost both.
An opening day 23-15 defeat against reigning champions Wales at the Millennium Stadium was followed by a 30-10 loss to France in Paris last time out.
Despite the setbacks there were positives to draw on for the Azzurri, namely the performance of Michele Campagnaro - his two tries against the Welsh a particular highlight.
But this weekend's clash against Scotland - who are also reeling from two losses - gives Italy the chance to return to Rome in front of their home faithful for the first time in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations.
And No.8 Parisse is looking to put on a show, but more importantly get a result for his side.
"Although they also come from two defeats, we have a great desire to finally play at home in front of our audience," said the 30-year-old.
"The RBS 6 Nations is a fabulous tournament and to see that every year the Stadio Olimpico is almost always sold out is a great honour.
"Scotland is always a difficult opponent to face: we must play well and try to achieve a positive result."
