The Azzurri supremo opted to play a three-man attack Stephan El Shaarawy, Mario Balotelli and Antonio Candreva but it failed to reap any real rewards, as the French defence kept most of their forward forays at bay.
Nonetheless, Prandelli believes it was right for him to try out different tactics and believes his side did not deserve to lose on the night.
"We didn't deserve to lose this," he said. "But it was right to experiment and we will experiment again.
"We need to be ready for the [World Cup] and that means using these games to test things out. It was the first time we were trying the 4-3-3 so some movements were not going to be solid.
"The strikers did well and have different characteristics. I saw a good Italy side."
The Italians are currently top of Group B in the European 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after picking up ten points from their opening four games.
