Acciaio in Italian means steel. A fair number of cheaper italian shotguns carry the title Acciaio followed by some other often famous name, like Vickers, or Breda. It denotes that the barrels are of Breda or Vickers or other famous steel.

The actual maker's name might not appear on the gun but their stamp will be on the barreld flats or action alongside the proof stamps.

If you post good pictures of the proof marks on the barrels and action flats, we will be able to help you.

As far as value goes, good pictures of the gun will help but this sounds like a "gun in hand" inspection would be needed.
