Italian Alpini (elite mountain infantery) training in the Dolomites Mountains.­ They just spent several days in the very rugged mountains, training with ropes (rappelling) and carrying very heavy backpacks and military assault weapons.­

The Alpini are currently involved in the mountainous regions of Afganistan (as of 2012).­
