Glasgow picked up just their sixth Magners League win of the season on Saturday with a narrow 17-16 victory over Aironi at the Stadio Luigi Zaffanella.
The Italian franchise celebrated their maiden Magners triumph last weekend by seeing off Connacht, but they were unable to make it two from two against their misfiring Scottish visitors.
The Warriors led 10-6 at the break thanks to a try from fullback Peter Murchie and a conversion and penalty from fly-half Ruaridh Jackson.
Aironi's points had come from the boot of scrum-half Tito Tebaldi and a converted try from his halfback partner James Marshall put the Italians 13-10 to the good.
But Ryan Grant's try, converted by Jackson, put the visitors back in front, meaning a penalty from Marshall was not enough for Aironi as Glasgow climbed to 10th in the table.
