Campanile Vanvitelliano Loreto 43.44125, 13.61031, Piazza della Madonna, 1, 60025 Loreto, Marche, AN. Campanile Vanvitelliano is the bell tower of the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto, in the Marche region. At 75.60 meters high, it is the tallest bell tower in the region. It rises on the left side of the Basilica, rising 75.60 m high. It was built between 1750 and 1754, on a design by the great Italian architect of Dutch origins Luigi Vanvitelli, author of the famous Royal Palace of Caserta. Built in bricks, with white Istrian stone finishes, it is spread over five levels. The two basics, incorporated in the Apostolic Palace, are square in plan; the third has an octagonal plan, the fourth with a circular plan and the fifth consists of the balustrade with the soaring baroque bulb pinnacle. It houses a carillon of nine bells [2] which intone the notes of the "Litanie lauretane". In the octagonal bell cell there is the main bell, affectionately called Loreta, cast in 1515 by Bernardino da Rimini, which with its diameter of 184 cm and weight of about 50 quintals appears to be the largest of the Marche and between the 17th and 22nd of Italy. The other 8 bells of the concert are located in the circular bell cell, cast mainly by Luigi Baldini of Sassoferrato (1830) and Lucio Broili of Udine (1960), while the main bell of the concert, which looks at Piazza della Madonna, was melted by Francesco Franceschi of Ancona in 1610.
