Number eight Taine Basham scored a hat-trick of tries as Wales got their first win of the Six Nations campaign against Italy at the Stadio Danilo Martelli.
Second row Ed Scragg scored Wales' other first-half try while Italy wing Michael Mba was in the sin bin.
Mba and Jacopo Trulla scored second-half tries for Italy as the hosts threatened more as the game progressed.
But two more Welsh tries from scrum-half Dafydd Buckland and Ioan Davies capped off a strong performance.
Italy host Ireland next on 22 February while Wales are at home to England at Colwyn Bay's Parc Eirias.
