Retired Munster Rugby captain and former All Black Doug Howlett is back on board with the province as a Corporate Ambassador.
Then it's Cardiff Blues in Thomond Park Stadium before they head for Rodney Parade and Galway's Sportsground, two March fixtures against sides who will be at near full strength.
Aironi have won two of their last three matches in the RaboDirect PRO12, at home to Treviso and Connacht while Munster have lost their last four away games in the RaboDirect since their 18-13 victory at Cardiff Blues on 23rd September.
They currently lie third in the table ten points adrift of leaders Leinster.
