The Rome Masters is an annual tennis tournament held in Rome, Italy. The men's competition is an ATP Masters Series event on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) tour. The women's competition is a Tier 1 event on the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) tour. The two competitions are currently held in separate weeks in May. The tournament is played on clay courts. The event was previously known as the Italian Open, changing its name in 2002. Its current official sponsored name is the Internazionali BNL d'Italia.

The Italian tennis championship was first held in 1930 in Milan, where it was played until 1934 before being moved to the "Foro Italico" in Rome in 1935. No event was held between 1936 and 1949. The competition resumed in 1950. It became an "Open" event in 1969.

Many tennis fans consider the Rome Masters to be the second most prestigious clay court tennis tournament in the world, after the French Open.
