*Links:

The Italian Wikipedia article about the town mentions the church and its 9 bells, though it gives two different names for it; unfortunately, its photo of the church does not include the "picturesque campanile."  Oddly, the Italian Wikipedia article about the church does not mention the bells, though its associated Wikimedia Commons category does have a photo of the tower.

An architectural history page about the building has one photo that shows the tower.

Having no principal maker, this chime is not indexed as such.
