    Hello,
    yes, it is a Alpine troops traditional hat, in the modern version used by the "4th Reg. Alpine Ranger Paratroopers"; a special forces unit of Italian Army.

    Would $20 be a decent price? It is missing nappina and feather.

    This is a modern object, so there is not a real collectible price, but if you are interested in modern material, this cap is certainly less common than a normal Alpine cap because it belongs to a special unit, so it can be acceptable, in my opinion.
    I think that nappina and feather can be found without much difficulty on the internet.

    Regards
