Totti was caught on camera spitting at Denmark's Christian Poulsen in Italy's opening game on Monday - which ended in a 0-0 draw.
If found guilty, the Roma captain could now face a suspension that would see him miss Italy's forthcoming group games against Sweden and Bulgaria.
The Danish Football Association issued a statement outlining their view on the matter.
"Totti on several occasions, unprovoked, spat in Poulsen's face," read the statement.
"That is now clearly proved by television footage and still pictures from the match."
