The inside story

The "Mole Antonelliana", the architectural symbol of Turin, was launched by the architect Alessandro Antonelli (from the city of Novara) in 1863. Originally conceived as a synagogue, it was purchased in 1878 by the Municipality of Turin, while it was still under construction, to turn it into a monument for national unity.

With a height of 167.5 meters, the "Mole" is the most impressive building in the city center of Turin and for a long time was even considered the highest stone construction in Europe. Still, during the twentieth century it was repeatedly restored and strengthened by reinforced concrete and steel beams.
