Chiesina Alpini

At the park above Colle is a beautiful memorial to the Alpini,  Italy’s mountain soldiers. They are light infantry troops specialising in mountain combat. They are known as Penne Nere (Black Feathers) thanks to the raven feather worn on their distinctive hats.

Unfortunately the little chapel was hit by a tree in the recent storm. Chris, who lives nearby, took the photo.

Let’s the chapel will be OK.
