The Azzurri are wrapping up their preparations for the FIFA Confederations Cup that kicks off on June 14th.
Meanwhile, the World Cup-winning coach has a vision for next year's gigantic competition.
"We will be trying to mix a few youngsters with the experienced footballers we have as this is how you blend a team for the World Cup next year," Lippi told FIFA's official website.
"Our immediate objective is to get some form going. I will be using players who are in good physical condition for the match against New Zealand."
Italy take on New Zealand, who lie in the Confederations Cup Group A, in a warm-up game on Wednesday.
The four-time world champions are in Group B alongside Egypt, Brazil and USA.
