The Website of the united parish has a page about this church, with a photo that shows a bit of the tower; the history reports nine bells acquired in 1958 and 1970 that are "ready for electrification."

A page about the architectural history of the church has no photo that shows the tower (though one hints at it); it locates but does not describe the tower, but does mention that it holds ten bells.

As of Apr.2022, the Italian Wikipedia article about the central town only identified its "frazioni."

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