The organ in the Chapel of the Episcopal seminary in Chiavari (GE) is a typical example of the Tuscan organ school of the nineteenth century. It was built by Giosuè Agati and children in 1840 and placed in the grandstand overlooking the entrance. It has a chromatic keyboard of 46 keys and range of C1-F5 with first octave short and division bassi-soprani between E3 and F3. The pedalboard is lectern shaped with 9 real notes, constantly coupled to the manual and has a fixed Basso stop. The registers are driven by levers placed in two columns to the right of the keyboard, according to the following setting:
