The bell tower: The birth

The construction of the Cathedral ended in 1862. After that they started thinking about building the Bell Tower which was meant to be built on the base of the massive defensive tower already belonging to the Cathedral.
The Parish Priest Antonio Mascari was the first one who thought about building the Bell Tower, while the successor Parish Priest Pietro Galli continued monitoring the construction during his mandate.
