Fino a Pasqua niente concerti, la torre sarà resa più solida - di A. Caccamo

 

CaptureNiente rintocchi e concerti di campane. Almeno fino a Pasqua. Il campanile della neoclassica chiesa dei Santi Cosma e Damiano sarà imbavagliato per qualche mese perché dovrà essere restaurato e reso più forte. A prova di rintocco. Perché le vibrazioni provocate dal suono dei bronzi lo hanno lesionato. Per proteggere la torre sarà costruita tutto attorno alle 6 grandi e bellissime campane una gabbia d'acciaio che servirà ad attenuare i tremori provocati dal batacchio ogni volta che le colpisce durante il dondolio.

The mechanical operations are expected to speak of general mechanical repair and complete painting of iron components.

Some mechanical components of the bells operation have been replaced to ensure safety and functioning of the same still for many years.

For electrical components we proceeded with the replacement of the handling of the bells, now no longer under the Law, with our innovative product RCTouchBell. Electrical accessories such as engines and chains were completely replaced.
