L’ adunata degli alpini is a commemorative event that takes place annually, on the second weekend of May, in an italian city that changes each year.
Alpini are a special military force, founded in 1872, specialized in mountain warfare.
Despite this, what makes an Adunata different from similar italian political or religious manifestations, is the awakening of a sense of unity and attachment to the country, unlike any other occasion. Even if for some of the attendants it lasts just for the weekend.
