*Links:

The Italian Wikipedia article about the church has a photo that includes the tower, but does not mention it.  The associated Wikimedia Commons category has another photo of the 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).  Curiously, the dates for construction of the tower (1921-42) are significantly later than the date of the oldest bells (1913).

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 De Poli bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
