The Italian Wikipedia article about the village has a short description of the church, but there is no photo of it.
Google Streetview shows that the church is dedicated to SS.Nazario e Celso; the belfry has two levels, with the concerto bells within the square lower level and the carillon trebles in the openings of the octagonal upper level.
