The band of the "Pinerolo" Mechanized Brigade draws its origins from the regimental bands, in particular from the musical traditions of the 231st "Avellino" Regiment, and it represents one of the most prestigious means to spread the military music of the Armed Force.
After the earthquake of 1980 in Irpinia, the band was dissolved to be reconstituted on 20th September 1984; in 1996, after the reorganization of the Army bands and brass bands, it was dissolved again. It was then reformed experimentally on 17th April 2004, located in the "Ruggero Vitrani" barracks in Bari.
Later the band has accompanied the most important moments in the history of the "Pinerolo" Brigade, during ceremonies on the national territory but also in operational theatres abroad such as Kosovo and Albania.
On 15th January 2010 the band was made official definitely by the General Staff of the Army. It is directed by the Field Marshal Carlo Resta. It is composed by Non-Commissioned Officers and Volunteers in fixed conscription; it has got 31 units divided into reed instruments, brass instruments and percussion instruments. Thanks to its vast and varied repertoire (military and foreign marches or transcription for bands), the band has also participated in several musical concerts such as the "6th European Culture Festival" in Algeria (May 2005) and the meeting with the Pope in Rome (22nd June 2005) gaining appreciation by all people.
