Mole Antonelliana

Bold and controversial, this building designed by Alessandro Antonelli (1798-1888) is the symbol of the city and appears on the 2 cent coins.
Originally commissioned as a synagogue, it was acquired in 1878 by city council.
Near completion in 1889, it was the highest brick building in the world (now 167,5 metres).
Since 2000 it has housed the National Cinema Museum, symbol of Turin's renascent cinema industry. The dome is illuminated by an installation by Mario Merz "Il volo dei numeri".
