This museum is considered to be one of the main attractions of Turin not only for its displays and expositions, but also due to its location within the “Mole Antonelliana”, a unique landmark and symbol of the city.
Inside the Mole itself you can take a panoramic elevator to enjoy from its top a spectacular view of both the city and the Alps, recognizing places that you might have already visited as part of a tour of Turin.
The museum is decorated in a modern art style and houses exhibits ranging from the systems precursor of the actual cinema up to modern productions, with a special focus on Italian productions and historical milestones of the 7th art.

And this passion continues; not far from Turin is still located a “City of cinema”...
