The National Cinema Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to its vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. Almost two million items, ranging from films, books, magazines, papers and original screenplays to photographs, posters, props, costumes, cameras, projectors and miscellaneous equipment represent the different phases of the evolution of an art form and its techniques.
But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup: the museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. The various areas inside the Mole Antonelliana were the starting point for the Swiss set designer François Confino who, with talent and imagination, multiplied the museum’s itineraries. He created a spectacular presentation that offers visitors continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.
