Italy coach Marcello Lippi has recalled Christian Vieri to his squad.
The Italians face Germany next week and Lippi has named a 23-man party.
Roma's Simone Perrotta has also been given a reprieve less than four months before the World Cup finals begin.
The news was not as good for Filippo Inzaghi and Antonio Cassano - who were both overlooked.
There was also room for one new face, Fiorentina's 23-year-old left back Manuel Pasqual.
In the goalkeeping department Lippi has opted for Morgan De Sanctis and Marco Amelia to provide the back-up for Gianluigi Buffon, in preference to Christian Abbiati and Angelo Peruzzi.
Squad in full: Buffon (Juventus), Amelia (Livorno), De Sanctis (Udinese), Barzagli (Palermo), Cannavaro (Juventus), Grosso (Palermo), Materazzi (Inter), Nesta (Milan), Oddo (Lazio), Pasqual (Fiorentina), Zaccardo (Palermo), Barone (Palermo), Camoranesi (Juventus), De Rossi (Roma), Diana (Sampdoria), Gattuso (Milan), Perrotta (Roma), Pirlo (Milan), Del Piero (Juventus), Gilardino (Milan), Iaquinta (Udinese), Toni (Fiorentina), Vieri (Monaco).
