Giampiero Ventura has named his first Italy squad to face France and Israel, including Gianluigi Donnarumma, Andrea Belotti and Alessio Romagnoli.
The Azzurri will begin their new era with a friendly against France on September 1 at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari.
Italy will then travel to Israel for a 2018 World Cup qualifier on September 5 in Haifa.
The squad will arrive at the Coverciano camp on Sunday night and Monday morning to begin training with their new Coach.
