The beginning stages of the bell creation process, where the 'souls' are formed to the tone of the Solfège of Solfeggio scale and the creation of the 'false bell' or the clay bell that will be covered in decorative wax motifs, before the top cup or the mantle is placed over it prior to the fusion.

Pontificia Fonderia di Campane or Pontifical Bell Foundry of the Marinelli family in the mountain village of Agnone in the region of Molise in southern Italy.

Twenty seven generations of the Marinelli family have been making bronze bells in the foundry for almost 1000 years, continuing the ancient artisanal techniques today.
