El diseño original era una sinagoga judía , pero después de diversos cambios de uso de momento ha acabado siendo el Museo Nacional del Cine
En el centro hay un ascensor que sube los los 167 m del edificio hasta una terraza donde hay una magnífica vista aerea de Turín , en días despejados se pueden ver hasta los Alpes
The mole Antoniellana is one of the most emblematic buildings of Turin, which incidentally is not seen until you almost run into it
It was to be a Jewish synagogue, but after several changes of use at the moment has come to be the National Museum of Cinema
In the center there is an elevator that climbs the building up to 167 m to a terrace where is a magnificent aerial view of Turin ;on clear days you can see to the Alps
The Mole is the symbol of Torino. The tower's classical style contrasts with its vertical progress. Until a few years ago it was the highest stone building in Europe (167.50 metres).The Mole was built in 1863 by architect Alessandro Antonelli. At the beginning, the Mole was a Synagogue, then became the house of the Museo del Risorgimento, and now it's the site of the new National Cinema Museum. There is a lift to the top. From up there there's a spectacular view of the town. The Museum of the Cinema is very beautiful and interesting. The Fibonacci progression (1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21 ...) is written in shining characters on one side of the Mole.
Turin was the first capital of modern Italy, and was the host of the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. Many say that it’s the European capital of Baroque as many palaces and churches were built in this style during the kingdom of the Savoia. The city is reminiscent of Paris, with wide boulevards and portico-covered sidewalks. Turin is also home to the FIAT auto group.
The "Mole" has been turned into a film musium showing the progression of filmmaking since early times. Plan to spend several hours taking in the whole experience. Also. take the elevator ride to the top!!
The symbol of Torino.. you will see it from almost every corner of the city. The lumination brings additional charm at night.. Cinema museum inside worth a visit.. we queued for an hour to get in though.. if you still have time, take the elevator get on the top terrace.. gorgeous gorgeous night view from there..
The Mole Antonelliana is 167 meters high. The new lift has crystal sides so you have great sight of inside has you speed past to 85 metres up. Surpassed by the wonderful view when you arrive at the balcony. In the same building is the museum of cinema. The Mole is minted on the reverse side of the italian 2 cent euro coin. GTT the company who run the lift, also run Turins buses and trams. The Mole is the tallest building in the world built of brick.
This is the Mole (pronounced "molay") Antonellian which used to be a Jewish Synagogue but is now home to the Museum of Cinema and a glass lift wich takes you to the top of the building to see the view over the rest of the city.
Completed in 1889, this structure, 167.5m tall, can be seen from all over Turin. It's the home of the Museo Nazionale del Cinema (National Museum of the Cinema) which is world-renowned. I didn't have time to visit the museum but it's worth just taking the lift to the top for wonderful panoramic views of the city. You can buy tickets separately for the museum and the lift but entrance is free if you have a Torino Card.
The Mole antonelliana is the most famous monument of Torino. It was built by Alessandro Antonelli between 1863 and 1889 and, originally, it was planned to be a sinagogue. It is 185 metres high, so it's one of the highest buildings of the city.
Today, the Mole hosts the Museo del Cinema, the first museum of that kind in Italia, which shows a wide collection of playbills, masks, films and everything related to the world of cinema.
Inside the Mole there is a lift that enables visitors to reach a height of 85 metres, from where they can see all of Torino. It's a very suggestive experience.
The first of these photos was taken from the Parco del Valentino, the second from just outside it (I think). The third picture was taken in the evening (around 18), when many monuments and squares were embellished with light games. In the case of the Mole, a three-colour red-white-green light, representing the Italian flag, was projected on its dome. Here you see just the red and the white light.
A unique thrill, to be experienced in the monument that is the emblem of Turin.
A spectular trip into the history of the city with the opportunity to enjoy a matchless panorama!!!!
The trip is done in maximum safety and thanks to the use of a futuristic structure made of transparent crystal, through which you can view a unique architectural beauty and an abundance of the new cinema museum settings.
