The top of the magnificiant building , the Mole Antonelliana, reaches a height of 76 m.
On the 4 large triangular and curved walls 20 m high that join this summit a mapping has been produced and implemented.

The diffusion of this mapping occurs at regular intervals. It is synchronized with the closing and opening of a hundred blinds, two large format projections on the first floor and the lighting of the entire nave.

In the center of Turin, the Mole Antonelliana was built in the 19th century, an architectural curiosity that was, before the Eiffel Tower, the highest building in the world. It was intended to be a synagogue but was eventually donated to the city by the then exsanguinated Jewish community. It remained empty until the City inherited, upon her death, the fabulous collection of Maria Adriana Prolo. Certainly the most beautiful collection in the world of objects, posters, souvenirs on the pre-cinema, the cinema, the photo, which allowed to develop a very rich museography.

The extremely rich collection of the museum includes more than
2,200,000 works, including films, archival documents, photographs, cameras and art objects, posters, film memorabilia, volumes and sound recordings, in a collection considered one of the most valuable in the world. Three main themes are documented: film archaeology, photography and film history.
