One of the bells of St. Lawrence Church in Livorno Ferraris / Una delle campane della Chiesa S. Lorenzo a Livorno Ferraris (Vercelli) IT *** Dalla prefazione di Hemingway al libro "Per chi suona la campana": "Ogni morte d'uomo mi riduce, perché io faccio parte dell'umanità. E, dunque, non chiedere mai per chi suona la campana. Essa suona per te."

Hello Romina. On the bell tower is 55 meters high, the bells are a little lower. The place is the main square of my country, Livorno Ferraris, where he was born scientist Galileo Ferraris who discovered the rotating magnetic field, his brother Adam, doctor of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who died in battle in Dijon and other distinguished men and women.

If you click on a thumbnail where "TOUR VIRTUALE NEL CAMPANILE" says I have prepared a virtual tour from the top of the tower, with links.

Even a greeting. Carlo

Fantastic capture, Carol! Wow, this is beautiful!

Very very nice.

I am very curious now as to what it says on the bell. Do you know?

Kind regards,

Mary Alice

Mary Alice... I have to climb 135 steps again to read the inscription in Latin! One day or another I go. I read Maria (Mary) and Ora pro nobis (pray for u). There is certainly an invocation to the Mother of Christ, because protect. Then there will be a time of the merger of bronze. Even a greeting Carlo

Natalia it is the bell tower of my country by the end of 18th century. The tower is 55 meters high. To get here, with bells on 40/45 meters, there are 135 steps. Look at the whole scale wood [click( Bye _Carlo
