A group of friends united by the passion for football here begins the story of what would later become an Italian legend. Yes, we are talking about Juventus (in Latin “youth”) founded on November 1, 1897.
Initially these were difficult years for this new football promise, born as a game, until 1923 when Giampiero Combi, one of the greatest goalkeepers of those times, joined the team.
On 24 July of the same year, Edoardo Agnelli, son of the founder of the FIAT industry, was elected president: the team began to have a field of its own.
In 1925 the first victories began, Juventus won the tricolor and, from 1930 to 1935 the “bianconeri” managed to win five championships, starting the so-called “Golden Quinquennium”.
In 1947, after Edoardo’s tragic death, his son Giovanni took his place, bringing the team to victory for two consecutive years.
Giovanni will give his place to his brother Umberto who will be the protagonist of various triumphs until the election of President Boniperti, former player.
Since July 13, 1971, Juventus has not stopped.
In all, this team has won 36 championships including nine consecutive wins (from 2012 to 2020). In addition, Juventus is engaged in other activities: for example, the Juventus Museum.
It was inaugurated on May 16, 2012 using highly technological and interactive instruments; inside the whole history of the team as well as the history of Turin and Italy is explained with an overview of the events that happened up to the end of the nineteenth century.
