About the images posted by JABIER, I would say:

Image 1; 381mm Mod.1914 gun turret (Genoa perhaps)
Image 2: Probably another 381mm Mod.1914 gun turret
Image 3: I am not sure but perhaps 381mm Mod.1914 guns on Italian monitor Faà di Bruno
Image 4: 381mm Mod.1914 gun turret (Genoa perhaps)

On the other hand, I need help with these Italian coastal guns. Any idea ? :?

Well, the image is from LUCE Italian archive, so I guess they are Italian guns or at least in Italian service....
