The church Website has a tiny photo of part of the building in the page headings.  A history page has a photo of the facade, and includes the architectural history of the tower, but says nothing about the bells.

The Italian Wikipedia article about the church mentions the tower but does not picture it, and does not mention the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Cavadini bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
