The custom minifigure of the Italianminifig Skier Alpine is sold with the typical helmet with a black feather. The uniform - full of details and printed at 360 ° on an original Lego - is the one supplied in the 40s, during the Second World War. The minifigure is finished by hand: any imperfection or discrepancy between one item and another is not to be considered a defect, but a feature that makes the product a unique piece.

The "Monte Cervino" Battalion was a department of skier alpine troops of the Italian Royal Army based in Aosta. 

Made up of volunteers - alpine guides and ski instructors - the alpine skiers specialized in mountain warfare and operated in small isolated groups. 

Established in the winter of 1915, it was deployed on the Alpine front during the First World War.

Subsequently, after the defeat suffered on the Greek-Albanian front in 1941, the battalion was dissolved, but soon reconstituted to be used on the Russian front. Here was born the legend of the "White Devils", so nicknamed by Soviet soldiers who respected their value.

Battle cry: "Pista!"

The blue tassel on the hat was used on the Greek front, red on the Russian one.

(This product is not a toy: it is not suitable for children under the age of 14, due to the small parts that constitute it. It is a collector's item of historical interest. Each Italianminifig item does not intend to celebrate any authoritarian regime, not intends to foment hatred or a repressive spirit towards freedom and human rights).
