The parish Website has a photo of the tower in the page headings, and another under "La Chiesa."  The history page (Storia della Chiesa) mentions the five bells installed in 1927, but not the recent expansion.

The Italian Wikipedia article about the town is little more than a stub (as of April 2022), though the church is mentioned.
