Bergamasco is Italy's Mr Versatile, having proved in the Six Nations to be as accomplished in the back row as he was on the wing.
Debut: 18/11/98 v Holland
Past World Cups: 1999
Did you know? Father Arturo was also an international flanker
The 27-year-old is the sort of flair player that coach John Kirwan relishes, and his 30-odd caps to date he has never let Italy down.
Even during some of the national side's darker moments, he has continued to impress all his opponents.
Known as the 'little jewel' by his team-mates, he is among Italy's growing number of global stars.
Injury blighted part of his season - he was sidelined for the latter stages of the Six Nations - but he is back to his best and ready to play wherever put by Kirwan.
A role in the back row looks his best bet.
