Marco Di Bello will be the referee for the Serie A curtain-raiser between Roma and Udinese as the Week 1 referees are announced.
The Giallorossi get the new season underway when they welcome the Zebrette to Stadio Olimpico for the 5pm kick-off on Saturday.
The last time Di Bello took charge of the Lupi was the Coppa Italia exit to Spezia, while Udinese have happier memories of a 1-1 draw with Sassuolo.
Elsewhere, Massimiliano Irrati will take charge of Inter’s trip to Chievo, Davide Massa is the man in the middle for Juventus-Fiorentina.
