Federer is playing at the Italian Open for the first time since 2015 when he was beaten by Stan Wawrinka in the quarter-finals.
The 37-year-old begins his tournament against Lorenzo Sonego and could then face Malek Jaziri of Tunisia.
Federer could then play back-to-back matches against Italians with Matteo Berrettini and Marco Cecchinto lying in wait.
The latter stages then get much tougher with a projected meeting with Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals, ahead Rafael Nadal in the semis then world No 1 Novak Djokovic in the final.
