The Italian Wikipedia article about Vigasio mentions the village of Forette (as a frazione) but does not describe it nor identify any of its churches.

An architectural history page pictures the old building and tower nearby, not the new building and tower.   "The church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Forette was built between 1957 and 1958 to replace the old parish church (dedicated to St. Martin and built as a parish in 1930), now used as a parish theater."

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of miscellaneous bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
