Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi contains a famous pipe organ, regarded as one of the finest in Europe. The organ is unusual in that it can be operated with a mechanical action, as a barrel organ. The basic principle is the same as a traditional pipe organ, but rather than being played by an organist, the barrel organ is activated by clockwork driven by weights or springs.
