In honor of Veterans day; I couldn't find this entry any more fitting.
Italy has so many different Festivals throughout the entire year. Ranging from Festa di Suca
( Festival of Pumpkins) to Festa di Funghi ( Festvial of Mushrooms) to Festa di Alpini which has been by far one of the more festivals that I truly have enjoyed.
The Alpini formed in 1872. They are the elite mountain warfare soldiers of the Italian Army.
On a hot summer day, we attended the Alpini Festival in the mountains of Northern Italy. What a beautiful time was had. We celebrated with great food, great wine, and great company. I made many new friends that day, young and old some were former Alpini soilders, some were currently serving in the Italian Mountain Troops.
