Marinelli Pontificia Fonderia di Campane

The Pontifical Marinelli Foundry is located in Agnone, a village in Molise, known as the "town of the bells." Many generations have continuously made a living in this family business, which is considered the oldest in Italy, with its 700-year history. In the ancient forge, bells and bronze sculptures are made entirely by hand, using the same lost wax casting technique dating back to the founders of the medieval and the Renaissance. The bells made here can be seen in some of the most prestigious churches in the world, as well as in the Giovanni Paolo II Historical Museum of the Bell, adjacent to the forge.
