Faventia barrel piano or street piano

I remember this being in my Grandfather's (fathers father) house when I was little. It's currently at my parents house.

I always knew this as the "hurdy gurdy" because that's what my mom called it. After investigating it a few years back I found out that it is actually an Italian Street Organ. The donkey was broken many, many years ago by my cousins (I just told my dad how glad I was that it wasn't one of us).

I recently gave it a quick tuning, although it needs another one. There's 2 extra rolls that I saw. Each one plays 6 different songs which are chosen on a dial on the side. Inside there's also a wood block and triangle for percussion.

I realized when I got home that I forgot to get any information off of it to post here, so I will do that next time.
