Things to see
Antonelli went back to work and the Mole dome was finally finished in 1889, a year after the architect’s death.
At the beginning of the 20th century the city used it as a Museum of the Risorgimento.
In 1953 a terrible storm destroyed part of the dome; it took almost a decade to rebuild it.
In 2000 the Mole was converted into the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, National Museum of Cinema. With its 167.5 meters, or 550 feet, of high the Mole Antonelliana is the tallest museum in the world.
