Umberto Agnelli passed away exactly 12 years ago, on 27 May 2004. His name will be forever linked with Juventus, as he ran the club from 1955 – first as special commissioner, then as president the following year – until 1962. In that time, the Bianconeri won three Scudetto titles, in 1958 (the club’s 10th), 1960 and 1961.
Agnelli would return to the helm of Juve in 1994, beginning another trophy-laden era both at home and abroad. These included the Champions League in 1996, which came after a league and cup double in 1995. It would take 20 years for the club to secure their next domestic double, a feat they repeated to historic acclaim this term.
In the year that Agnelli entered the Hall of Fame for Italian Football for his significant achievements in the game, it is only fitting that Juventus dedicates this season's Serie A and Coppa Italia successes to him on the anniversary of his passing.
