2nd Alpine Engineer Regiment

The 2nd Alpine Engineer Regiment (Italian: 2° Reggimento Genio Guastatori Alpino) is a military engineer regiment of the Italian Army, specializing in mountain combat. Founded in 1860 it is currently the oldest active Engineer Regiment of the Italian Army. Since 1954 it has been part of the 4th Alpine Army Corps and thus a strong association with the Italian Army's mountain infantry corps - the Alpini. The Alpini distinguished themselves in combat during World War I and World War II. Like the Alpini and the members of the Mountain Artillery regiments the soldiers of the 2nd Alpine Engineer Regiment wear the distinctive Cappello Alpino. Today the 2nd Alpine Engineer Regiment is part of the Alpine Brigade Julia.
