What a Crowd!...For Us?....
I hope someone told the squads that the 500,000 people in Piazza Carignano and Piazza Castello in Torino today where there also for the annual Alpini* reunuion. Nevertheless, it must have been fun for squads to participate as the Giro presentation was combined with the reunion.
*The Alpini are the elite mountain warfare soldiers of the Italian Army. Formed in 1872, they are the oldest active mountain infantry in the world.
