Celebrating 120 years of Bianconeri history was the theme of Wednesday night’s special event held at Juventus Museum for Gianni and Umberto Agnelli Club members, the most prestigious of the Juventus Premium Club.
Taking part were Juventus Museum president, Paolo Garimberti; Juventus president, Andrea Agnelli; CEO and General Manager Sport, Giuseppe Marotta; CEO/CFO, Aldo Mazzia, and Juventus Top Management in the form of Giorgio Ricci (Co-Chief Revenue Officer - Head of Global Partnerships and Corporate Revenues) and Federico Palomba (Co-Chief Revenue Officer - Head of Marketing and Digital).
Making the night extra special was the presence of Bianconeri legend, Moreno Torricelli, joined by current Juventus duo, Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa. The event was presented by Juventus TV director, Claudio Zuliani, alongside presenter, Monica Somma.
Juventus Museum president, Paolo Garimberti, opened proceedings by greeting those in attendance: “It is a pleasure to have you here tonight and we thank you for joining us.
“Today we have reached 920,000 admissions since the opening of Juventus Museum and we expect to arrive at the one million milestone in the Spring of 2018. This is an important sign, as the success of the museum goes in tandem with that of the squad. On matchdays, we often register over 2,000 visitors per day and these are numbers which make us proud.
“When Allianz Stadium was inaugurated, president Andrea Agnelli proclaimed that the stadium would become something of a cathedral for Juventus fans and the Museum would be its tabernacle, and so it has proved.
“Here you can find the bench where the club was founded 120 years ago, the jerseys of the players to have made more than 300 appearances and much more, such as the Ballon d’Or awards won by our Bianconeri, including that of Omar Sivori, who reminds me of a certain Paulo Dybala here with us tonight.”
Following Garimberti’s speech, Gianni and Umberto Agnelli Club members received a warm welcome from Juventus president, Andrea Agnelli, before enjoying an exclusive tour of Juventus Museum and taking in the special exhibition, Black & White Times by Walter Veltroni, celebrating 120 years of Bianconeri history.
