Saturday's two Serie A games have been postponed due to bitterly cold weather affecting Italy.

The encounter between Roma and Inter Milan at the Stadio Olimpico has been moved to Sunday after snow fell intermittently in the capital on Friday, forcing the local authorities to call off the game for safety reasons.

"Considering the decision taken by the Rome authorities to postpone Roma v Inter, set to take place tomorrow at the Stadio Olimpico, Inter will return to training tomorrow at La Pinetina," read a statement from Inter.

Cesena's home game against Catania, which was scheduled for Saturday afternoon, will also not take place due to heavy snow.

"Considering the adverse weather, the safety conditions cannot be guaranteed for the game to take place," read a statement from Cesena.

A new date for the Cesena fixture has yet to be confirmed.

Earlier this week four Serie A games were called off due to adverse weather in the country.
