MSFS2020 - Mole Antonelliana - Torino, Italy - V.1.0

The Mole Antonelliana is a monumental building in Turin. Located in the historic center, is the symbol of the city and one of the symbols of Italy. Construction began in 1863, soon after Italian unification, and was completed in 1889, after the architect's death.

The name, Mole, (that in italian dictionay means monumental construction of large proportions and rather massive appearance) derives from the fact that, in the past, it was the tallest masonry construction in Europe, while its adjective derives from the architect who conceived it, Alessandro Antonelli. However, during the twentieth century, it underwent major renovations with reinforced concrete and steel beams, so it can no longer be considered an exclusively masonry structure.

With a height of 167.5 meters, for years it was the tallest building in Turin, but today, after the construction of two other modern towers, it remains the tallest building of the only urban central profile of the city. From the year 2000, the National Museum  of Cinema is housed inside.
