The parish Website has contact information but no photo of the building as a whole.

The Italian Wikipedia article about the church has a section about the campanile, with a photo of the quasi-octagonal belfry.  However, the assertion that there were originally eight bells seems questionable.  A photo of the whole church includes the bell tower.

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).

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