On the bell tower there are n. 5 of historic value bells, cast by the foundry and dating Comerio year 1834, by the following features:

I ° Bell diameter cm 120, 970 kg weight

Campana III 95 cm diameter, weight 485 kg

IV Bell diameter cm 90, 410 kg weight

V ° Bell diameter cm 80, 295 kg weight


Mechanics: The operations included the replacement of two insulators, completely worn out. Three of the five bells were "wrong". For this reason it proceeded to straighten them and balance them. The clappers, very hard, began to undermine its bells. Therefore it proceeded with the replacement of the same, with new hand made by the traditional method to the mallet.
