Mole Antoneliana is the main landmark of Torino and one of the symbols of Italy. It was built in the late 19-th century by the famous architect Antoneli and it was started as a synagogue. Currently with its 167 meters it is one of the tallest structures in Torino and probably the highest building in Italy if we exclude the TV towers and masts. Inside the tower is hollow and contains the greatest cinema museum I have ever seen - I spent a few hours just walking around the different halls where you can not onlz see different interesting cinema-related exhibits, but also watch movies.
There is also a big elevator taking you to a terrace very high in the sky (but actually no very close to the top of the tower). The view there is amazing, but unfortunately in the early november morning when I visited the tower there was fog around the town. [more]
