The Italian Wikipedia article about the church has a photo of it, but does not mention the bells.

The Italian Wikipedia article about the town has a paragraph about local culture, which mentions a school of ringing Veronese style that has existed since 1808, when a ring of 5 bells by Partilora VR was installed (since replaced).

A page about the architectural history of the church has one photo that shows the tower, and a paragraph describing it (but not the bells).

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