The name “Mole” (in Italian, a building of monumental proportions) comes from the fact that in the past it was the highest masonry building in Europe. The adjective “Antonelliana” comes from the name of the architect who designed it Alessandro Antonelli. In the 20th century it was restored with reinforced concrete and steel girders. It is 167.5 meters high and it is still one of the highest buildings in the city.
