Defending champions France came from behind to avoid a shock defeat against Italy in a thrilling Six Nations game.
They won 29-24 in Rome.
The Azzurri led 24-22 before Matthieu Jalibert sniped over from close range as France claimed a bonus-point win.
The visitors looked comfortable thanks to first-half tries by Thibaud Flament, Thomas Ramos and Ethan Dumortier.
But Ange Capuozzo crossed before Italy were awarded a penalty try and Tommaso Allan kicked four penalties but the hosts could not hang on in Rome.
Victory for France stretches their unbeaten run to 14 matches, a sequence that includes Fabien Galthie’s side claiming the Grand Slam last year.
They travel to Dublin to face world-number-one-ranked Ireland on Sunday while Italy plays England at Twickenham the following day.
