Bob,

The case and the rear of the medal above are marked "ROMA". I'd guess Italian

Italian Order of the Crown. Several for sale on the emedals site. Looks like they sell in the $800-1350 range.

Gaz,

Same award. The upper version has a loop so it is worn around the neck. The lower has a pin on the back and is to be worn on a dress uniform
