Turin, the Mole Antonelliana

The Mole Antonelliana, 167m high, is the symbol of the city of Turin. It is named for the architect, Alessandro Antonelli, who designed it in 1863 as a synagogue, then the project was changed. The building was completed 26 years later, after the architect's death. Nowadays it houses the National Museum of Cinema. A glass-walled lift soars up to a viewing platform 85m up on the spire of the building: from there the panorama over the city and towards the Alps is wonderful.

Happy Sky Watch!
