      The much-loved Avvocato, Juventus president from 1947 to 1953, was born on 12 March in Turin

      Giovanni Agnelli was born on 12 March 1921 in Turin. It would be a mammoth and complicated task to describe just how great a personality he was, and the extraordinary influence he had on the history of both Italy and Juventus. It's certainly not something we can do in these few lines, our attempt to pay homage to him on this anniversary.

      What we can do today is remember the example he set, not only during his six years as Juventus president, from 1947 to 1953, but also in the way he continued to stand beside the club even when he no longer held that position.

      Another thing we can do today is remember the way Giovanni Agnelli lived the game, with his enthusiasm and expertise, all the while deeply aware that when all is said and done it remains just that: a game. A game to be experienced with joy, making sure that your passion as a fan never gets in the way of the fun and enjoyment.

      For anyone who lives for the game, that is perhaps L'Avvocato’s greatest legacy.
