The Italian Rugby Federation has awarded caps to the 161 women who have played for Italy since the first match in 1985.
The awards were made in the Hall of Honour at the Olympic Stadium in Rome before the Italian men's game against Argentina. There was a similar event for all surviving men's players earlier in the year.
Since 1985 Italy's women have played 110 Tests, winning 37 and drawing two. They joined the Six Nations in 2007.
