Discovering the history of the silver screen
Inside the Mole Antonelliana, Turin’s symbolic monument, the history of the big screen can be retraced from its origins to present day. Among the many rooms here in the National Cinema Museum, you can join an immersive itinerary designed by Turin architect, Gianfranco Gritella, and Swiss set designer, François Confino.
Once you cross the threshold, you will find yourself surrounded by stage sets, projections and light effects, and you will be invited to embark on the upward spiral path following the shape of the Mole Antonelliana. Room after room, level after level, you move through ten thematic areas not just looking at memorabilia, posters, photographs and films illustrating the history of cinema, but going 'behind the scenes' to discover the secrets behind the camera.
Together with a visit to the Museum, it is possible to climb up to the Mole Antonelliana’s Dome, either on foot or in the panoramic lift to the Tempietto with a small surcharge.
