Reproduction of Mole Antonelliana, surrounded by the 12 stars of the European Union; on the left the overlapping letters 'R' and 'I'; on the right 2002 above the letter 'R'; and on the bottom the engraver's initials, the overlapping letters LDS.

The Mole Antonelliana is a major landmark building in Turin, Italy, named after its architect, Alessandro Antonelli. A mole in Italian is a building of monumental proportions.

Construction began in 1863, soon after Italian unification, and was completed in 1889, after the architect's death. Originally conceived of as a synagogue, it now houses the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, and is the tallest museum in the world.

Engraver: Luciana De Simoni
