The 14th Alpini Regiment (Italian: 14° Reggimento Alpini) was a short lived (1993–2005) light Infantry regiment of the Italian Army, specializing in Mountain Combat. It was created by elevating the existing Tolmezzo Battalion to regiment. The regiment, as the battalion before it, was part of the Alpine Brigade Julia and based in the city of Venzone. The Alpini are a mountain infantry corps of the Italian Army, that distinguished itself in combat during World War I and World War II. In 2005 the army downsized its forces and the 14th Alpini Regiment was disbanded on 14th October 2005 with the Tolmezzo battalion passing to the 8th Alpini Regiment.
