Udinese midfielder Gaetano D'Agostino has been called up to the Italy squad for the first time.
Marcello Lippi has rewarded D'Agostino for his excellent club form by including him in a 22-man party for Wednesday's friendly against Greece.
Udinese have made a fine start to the Serie A season and striker Simone Pepe was selected in Lippi's starting XI last month for the World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Montenegro.
Pepe has been retained along with club-mate Fabio Quagliarella but fellow Udinese forward Antonio Di Natale misses out through injury.
In-form Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero has again been overlooked with Lippi preferring to try out younger players.
Fabio Grosso, Nicola Legrottaglie and Mauro Camoranesi return following injury lay-offs but right-back Gianluca Zambrotta is unfit.
Gianluca Curci of Siena and Galatasaray's Morgan De Sanctis will vie for the goalkeeper's jersey in the absence of the injured Gianluigi Buffon and Marco Amelia.
Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena has been selected despite struggling to establish himself as a regular in Rafa Benitez's side.
Gianluca Curci (Siena), Morgan De Sanctis (Galatasaray); Daniele Bonera (AC Milan), Fabio Cannavaro (Real Madrid), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Andrea Dossena (Liverpool), Alessandro Gamberini (Fiorentina), Fabio Grosso (Lyon), Nicola Legrottaglie (Juventus); Mauro Camoranesi (Juventus), Gaetano D'Agostino (Udinese), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Gennaro Gattuso (Milan), Christian Maggio (Napoli), Riccardo Montolivo (Fiorentina), Simone Perrotta (Roma); Alberto Gilardino (Fiorentina), Vincenzo Iaquinta (Juventus), Simone Pepe (Udinese), Fabio Quagliarella (Udinese), Giuseppe Rossi (Villarreal), Luca Toni (Bayern Munich)
