Ordinance march of the 8th Reggimento Genio Guastatori Paracadutisti “Folgore”, dedicated to paratrooper sappers of all times, who with their sweat and sacrifice have contributed to making this particular department of the Italian Army great.
“Avanti è la vita” is a concert march that owes its name to the motto of the aforementioned Regiment. Rich in dynamic and timbral diversity, it wants to enhance the salient moments of the history and life of the department.
The trio, with a reflective character, is dedicated to the paratrooper sappers who have fallen in the fulfillment of their duty, who now look at us from that corner of heaven (as a well-known song says) reserved for martyrs and heroes.
