The Italy national rugby union team (Italian: Squadra nazionale italiana di rugby) represents Italy in the international men's rugby union. The team is known as gli Azzurri (the light blues). Savoy blue is the common color of the national teams representing Italy, as it is the traditional color of the Royal House of Savoy that ruled the Kingdom of Italy from 1860 to 1946.
Italy has played international rugby since 1929 and for decades was considered one of the best European teams outside the Five Nations Championship. Since 2000, Italy has participated annually in the Six Nations Championship with England, France, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. In 2013 they were holders of the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy which is played annually between Italy and France. Italy is ranked 12th in the world by the IRB as of February 13, 2023.
