The church Website has photos of the building on the home page.  A history page ("Storia") reports the construction of the building in 1962-64, so the five older bells must have been recycled from elsewhere.  The newer bells may have been acquired for the consecration of the building in 1989.  The bells are hung on levels 4 & 5 of the six open levels of the modern tower.

The Italian Wikipedia article about this neighborhood of Verona (2 km SW of center) mentions this church, as well as that of San Giovanni Battista in Cadidavid (to the south).

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