Photographer's Note

The Mole Antonelliana (named after its architect Alessandro Antonelli) is Turin's most famous landmark and even found its way onto the Italian euro coins (2 cent). It was originally supposed to be built as a synagoge for Turin's sizeable Jewish community. As the size and cost of the building grew out of hand though, the city had to take it over. From 1908 to 1938, the city used it to house its Museum of the Risorgimento. These days it is home to National Museum of Cinema, and is believed to be the tallest museum in the world.
