The Infantry, characterized by the flames with two scarlet tips, has got 5 Specialties: Grenadiers, Bersaglieri, Alpines, Paratroopers and Lagunari.
The Grenadiers wear silver braidings on a scarlet background, the Bersaglieri wear the flames with two crimson tips and the Alpines wear the flames with two green tips.
The Paratroopers' patches are constituted by a blue rectangle with their symbols, parachute, wing and sword, on the upper part.
The most recent Infantry specialty is that of the Amphibious Troops, or Lagunari; they have got a pentagonal scarlet patch with their symbol, the Lion of San Marco, in the centre.
On the right of this page there are the patches of each specialty.
Infantry outside Corps
The independent Infantry regiments and battalions have got their own traditional colours. In the list here above there are the patches of the current units, while the patches of the dissolved units are described on the page "Patches no longer in use". The sample is the right patch (for who wears); the couple is made up of two specular insignias put on the collar of the jacket.
During the years the units that were still present after the Second World War have been dissolved on the framework of the reorganization of the Army. The Flags of the regiments no longer existent are collected in the Vittoriano Museum in Rome.
Today various units that were part of the Infantry have many tasks and they are called multiple army units because they are composed of personnel coming from different Armies.
