The jewel in the crown of Juventus Stadium, J-Museum, has officially passed the 400,000 visitor barrier less than two-and-a-half years since first opening its doors on 16 May 2012.
Sunday afternoon’s visit of Parma marked the moment the attraction welcomed guest number 400,000, with the team then turning on the style afterwards courtesy of a thrilling 7-0 win over the Gialloblu.
Trophy wise, Juventus Museum has had three Scudetto titles and two Super Cups added to its glittering collection of triumphs, all savoured by the 500 visitors who take an interactive journey through the greatest football story ever told on a daily basis.
The museum is complemented to perfection by the Stadium Tours, which have led approximately 9,000 lovers of the beautiful game around the Bianconeri’s home since their inception.
Saturday’s addition of Gigi Buffon’s shirt to the prestigious 500 club is yet another reason why this particular weekend will remain a special one in the attraction’s chronicles.
J-Museum president Paolo Garimberti said: “It’s not just a coincidence that the 400,000 visitor landmark is celebrated alongside Juventus captain Buffon’s 500th appearance, because, along with being the place where we pay tribute to our history, the museum is also a temple of recognition for those who have and continue to honour the black and white stripes with their fine performances.”
He concluded: “Since I became the museum’s president, two pillars of this three consecutive Scudetto-winning side, Chiellini and Buffon, have brought their shirts here after reaching important appearance milestones, 300 and 500 respectively. I’m sure they will both be able to go on and achieve other equally significant targets.”
