Five of the Glasgow contingent will take to the field for the opening kick-off at the Stadio Olimpico, as Scotland look to continue a winning run in the Italian capital stretching back to 2012.
Zander Fagerson retains his place at tight-head prop, having started both championship matches to date in 2020.
Scott Cummings continues his record of starting every match since his championship debut against Ireland in round one by earning his third successive outing in the second-row.
Sam Johnson completes the quintet of Warriors in the starting XV, lining up at inside centre for the seventh time in Scotland's last eight Guinness Six Nations fixtures.
There's also a place for two try-scorers from Glasgow's victory over Zebre on Friday night; George Horne retains the number 21 shirt after his two-try showing at Scotstoun, whilst Matt Fagerson's impact upon his return from injury is rewarded with a first Scotland selection of 2020.
