The Ventimiglia-Trieste alpine relay makes a stop in Sirmione

In the 23 stages, the Alpine troops will carry the torch of peace, lit during the National Gathering


The Staffetta alpina Ventimiglia-Trieste, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Alpine troops, has chosen to stop in Sirmione where there is a particularly active local section of Alpine troops. On June 22, 2022, our peninsula will welcome the soldiers of the Julia Alpine Brigade who will carry the torch of peace to the bell of the fallen in the churchyard of San Pietro in Mavino.

The initiative is part of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the Alpine Corps: a year-long path that includes a series of cultural, sports and training initiatives and will end in Naples on 15 October 2022.
