The building itself is unique in Italy and amongst the most important worldwide, having it’s residence in the most significant architectural symbols of the city “La Mole Antonelliana”.

The Museum will enforce control measures based on the latest security procedures with addition of an experimental programme to manage the flow of visitors.  

This system was created thanks to the co-ordination of the museums partners and suppliers, agreeing to reconcile on the safety measures requested in the anti COVID-19 guidelines.
