The number of church bells kept in the Museum is quite substantial. There are 8 artifacts each belonging to different eras, proving that the production of church bells was well developed and established in Gallipoli, thanks probably to the presence of a number of churches and confraternities in the area.
Metalworking workshops were operating in the city of Gallipoli since 1500, but it’s only between 1600 and 1700 that their activity saw a rise in the production of church bells, bringing Gallipoli at the center of the scene in this sector.
