Ranks and Acronym for the Italian 9th Airborn Assault Regiment (“Col Moschin”)

Greetings, all those who might know stuff about the Italian military.

I have a character (male), whom I would like to be a member of the Italian special forces regiment "Col Moschin". I've Googled this regiment and read the Wikipedia entries and the links provided that were in English, and I've also looked up various combinations of "Ranks + Ages + Italian Military", "Age + Rank + Italian 9th Airborn Assault Regiment", "Age + Rank + Col Moschin" and the like. I now know what ranks one can achieve in the Italian military, and that they have a world-renowned air force, but I can't find what I'm looking for. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

So here's what I need:

I know that besides "Col Moschin", the regiment's nickname is "il Nono". Is there, however, some kind of acronym that is also used? (I'm thinking along the lines of USAF or RCAF.)

And what age would someone generally be to be a Captain (Capitano) in il Nono? I'm guessing that it would be similar to someone in the Canadian or US armed forces, which would make them in their mid-to late twenties. Is this correct?

Thank you all very much in advance.
