2nd Alpine Signal Regiment

The 2nd Alpine Signal Regiment (Italian: 2° Reggimento Trasmissioni Alpino) is a deployable signals regiment of the Italian Army based in Bolzano in South Tyrol that specializes in mountain warfare. Since 1951 it has been part of the 4th Alpine Army Corps and therefore has a strong association with the army's mountain infantry corps, the Alpini, with which the regiment shares the distinctive Cappello Alpino. Today the regiment is administratively assigned to the army's Signal Command and affiliated with the Division "Tridentina".[3]
