The 16th Alpini Regiment (Italian: 16° Reggimento Alpini) was a short lived (1991-2004) light infantry training regiment of the Italian Army, specializing in mountain warfare. The Alpini are a mountain infantry corps of the Italian Army, that distinguished itself in combat during World War I and World War II.

The regiment was based in the city of Belluno and consisted of the single Belluno battalion. The main task of the regiment was the training of the recruits for the Alpini regiments based in the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia regions of northern Italy. First subordinated to the Alpine Brigade Cadore it passed to the Alpine Brigade Julia after Cadore was dissolved in 1997. Soon afterwards Julia ceded the regiment to the Alpini Corps Command. With the suspension of compulsory military service in Italy the regiment was dissolved on November 30th, 2004. During its short existence the regiment trained approximately 85,000 soldiers.
