Piemontese army 1815

Hi guys,

I was off in my holidays in Italy for some days.
There I found a lot of interesting places, museums etc. Most from the Risorgimento.

The history of the Carabinieris confused me a little bit. They write, that the regiment was created on July 13 1814. Their very first action under fire was in Grenoble on July 5 1815.

"A mounted Carabinieri squadron rushed into the middle of the frontline where Piemontese and French armies were facing each other. The attack shattered the French resistance and brought victory to the Piemontese."

I never heard about the Piemontese army fighting in 1814/15. Does anybody has more information about this subject?
