Agnone, the city of bells

Agnone la città delle campane | Agnone the city of Bells | Pontificia Fonderia Marinelli.

The oldest bell foundry, the Pontificia Fonderia Marinelli, is located in Agnone. A tour in the Museum of Bells is simply unforgettable: it keeps the most complete collection of sacred bronze, in particular the Bell of the Year 1000. The story of the Foundry intertwines with the Popes of the XX century: John Paul II, in particular, visited the Foundry on March, 19 1995.  A date that the “Agnonesi” will always remember.
