Among the most important in the world for its rich heritage and the diversity of its scientific and educational activities, the National Cinema Museum owes its uniqueness to its exhibition set-up. Hosted by the Mole Antonelliana, a landmark monument and symbol of Turin, this "temple of cinema" spirals upwards through several exhibition levels, creating a spectacular display of its extraordinary collections and retracing the history of cinema from its origins to the present time, in an evocative interactive itinerary.
