"Alpini" band from the Val Camonica performing in Turin

"Alpini" band from the Camonica Valley performing under the arches of the Palazzo della Regione Piemonte, in Piazza Castello, on the night of May 7, 2011. 


The "Alpini," from my understanding, is basically a traditional "Alpine cultural and mountaineering club." It's tied into "Alpini nel Mondo," a worldwide association, with branches as far as San Francisco and Capetown. You may recognize the traditional hats they have on--as well as the outfits--which is something along the same lines as the traditional German Alpine dress... Cisalpine-style. If this isn't "our culture," then nothing is..
