Filippo Inzaghi is the notable omission from the Italy squad named for Euro 2004 by Giovanni Trapattoni.
Inzaghi has been struggling with an ankle injury
The AC Milan star has been struggling with an ankle injury and Italy boss Trapattoni decided to opt instead for Juventus forward Marco Di Vaio.
Parma's highly-rated Alberto Gilardino was also overlooked despite scoring 23 goals in Serie A.
In defence, Inter's Marco Materazzi took the last place ahead of Juve's Nicola Legrottaglie.
Italy's first-choice goalkeeper will be Gianluigi Buffon, ahead of Francesco Toldo and the veteran Angelo Peruzzi.
The Azzurri begin training next week near Florence before playing
their last friendly, away from home against African champions Tunisia, on 30 May.
