For the 150th anniversary of italian unification, a green-white-red LED jewel ("gioiello tricolore") has been put around Mole Antonelliana's "neck".

This collier has been designed by architects Lupi, Migliore and Servetto, also authors of the look of the city for the 2011 celebrations.

Note: the red neon numbers are "Flight of numbers", a light installation by Mario Merz for Luci d'artista, dedicated to the Fibonacci series.

This is an overview of Turin

Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
