The veronese ringers have a website and they do have an equivalent 
of Dove. David Bagley has loads of info.

Veronese bells are counterbalanced and strike wrong and very often 
have very long draughts of cart rope with no sallies. The bells turn 
very slowly but can easily be handled by english ringers even if 
quite heavy. No stays. The bells often swing in and out of the 
louvres and sometimes hang in independant frames arranged quite 
randomly in the tower. In warm weather 5 mins ringing can wreck your 
hands though.
