I don't think this is gonna happen, as the capital of Italy is Rome and not Milan

Anyway it could be possible in the future they gonna use Olimpico instead of Flaminio stadium for 6 nations, if they think they 'need' more places for spectators...
There is a problem though on using main soccer stadiums for a competition that last several weeks. For istance Olimpico and San Siro (which currently are the stadiums where Roma and Lazio - the first one - and Inter and Milan - the second one - play) could have even two soccer matches a week, shared by Serie A and various 'cups'... it could be a problem to schedule the trophy

Let me show you how your team must react (believe me...it works) :

Random order:

Wembley
Anfield Rd
Old Trafford
Maracana
Bombonera
San Siro
Nou Camp
Santiago Bernabeu
Signal Iduna Park (westfalenstadion)
Amsterdam Arena

with iconic soccer stadium, i mean a stadium i immediately relate to big champions league (or copa libertadores) evenings, or at least to big clubs. Stadiums like Olimpico or Stade de France may be historic stadiums which hosted very big events and may be good for different uses, but if we're talking about soccer, they're not iconic.
I included Wembley and Maracana (and Signal Iduna Park), because the link with their national teams is immediate. Wembley means England national team, and so on.

Wembley
Stade de France
Old Trafford
Maracana
Azteca
Nou Camp
Santiago Bernabeu

I couldn't think of 10, but those were the first and only to come to mind, in terms of being a world wide icon.

To be fair that's not the best clip you could have showed of France beating New Zealand. The game was only won because of a terrible piece of officiating which allowed a forward pass in the build up to Jauzion's try.

Besides, I thought this was a cracking reaction to the Haka:


Now that's a proper stare-down!

It's true. I don't care much about new Wembley or Allianz Arena. Those are good stadiums certainly, beautiful architecture but any club building a new stadium can make something similar. Westfalen and Velodrome are unique, dense crowd, close to the pitch. Greatest football venues IMHO.

Good stadiums certainly. However, Santiago Bernabeu is too sliced with many small stands on different terraces. You can't get the crowd effect that you get on Westfalen or Velodrome.

Anfield is really nothing special. The Kop is loud but the stadium itself is just an ordinary English premiership stadium.

Old Trafford is a great Venue. I'd say 3rd best right behind the magnificent 2.

My point wasn't the Haka itself but the reaction/response of the French team (when the French stayed the closest possible of the All-Blacks during their Haka...GrRRRRRR ) ...

Although it was a terrible strain on our nerves : That game was fantastic , especially for its atmosphere in the stadium in Cardiff where France seemed to play "at home" !
