THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF CINEMA, TURIN
This unique exhibit space is an Italian motion picture museum.
It 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.
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 Turin. And 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 unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.
Different halls have screens showing different clips for a specific genre of film. There are also exhibits on the process of making films and on film history.
Best of all for true movie buffs: the museum’s unrivaled collection of vintage movie posters.
The Museum is more than a museum and whoever enters it isn’t just a visitor but also an explorer, an author, an actor, a spectator… to whom the Museum offers the emotions of an experience not to be easily forgotten.
