For me the sound of bells is a special attraction. Yesterday, just following that sound, I arrived in the small village of Montasico, close to Marzabotto.
What I have found is a number of people just enjoing in playing the 4 bells in the tower of the church. I have understood this activity is reviving in the area of Bologna's hills.
Montasico was founded around the 11th century and was owned by various noble families for the presence of a castle where owners still live.
The church was built around the 12th century, but the tower is more recent.
The 4 bells have a very clear sound and have been casted by Mr. Clemente Brighenti on 1875.
Today's inhabitants of Montasico: No. 11

Very nice and interesting picture and the note helps us to "see" the photo better. Nice colours and contrast and also good POV.

questi paesini sono deliziosi, immagino il grandissimo silenzio interrotto solamente dal rintocco delle campane, che meraviglia dev'essere!
Complimenti per questa stupenda foto e per averla condivisa con noi. Buon week end.
