      The Juventus President received the award today at the Turin Chamber of Commerce

      Juventus-Milan match day began in a special way for our President.

      In fact, Andrea Agnelli received the "Torinese of the year 2018" award at the Turin Chamber of Commerce, as part of the "Work, Loyalty and Economic Progress" awards. 

      It’s a special recognition that was awarded to Agnelli, during its 42nd edition, and it was handed to him by Giunta and the President of the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Vincenzo Ilotte. 

      “For his vision and his entrepreneurial ability, which allowed him to develop Juventus and lead it to be become one of the first football teams in the world to go from a traditional sports club to a commercial giant. It’s a well-known brand, that boasts a Museum which is able to create unique emotional experiences, all while making it become, in all respects, one of the main engines of the City’s tourism economy.”

      This is the main reason why the President was assigned the award, who every year awards the people of Turin for excellence in "offering a special contribution in the field of activity: economy, art, science or social". It is an award, which has also been assigned to people such as: Gian Luigi Gabetti, Sergio Marchionne, Evelina Christillin.

      WORDS OF THE PRESIDENT

      "I would like to thank you all for having honoured me with this recognition,” declared Andrea Agnelli at the time of the award. “I firmly believe that it is not the individual, but the group that makes the difference. Without the passion, the strategic plans and the investments, which started in 2010, Juventus would not be one of the many Turin excellences. 

      “Today, on the other hand, Juve is a leading company at a European level, which in recent years has gone from 250 employees, between members and non-members, to almost 800, with a significant social / occupational impact on our territory. We are an industrial reality, in the modern sense of the term, which has attracted over 350 million investments in Turin, to redevelop and change a part of the Turin area.”

      He continued: “We are also a recognized and recognizable brand all over the world. And, as has happened to so many other excellences in the territory, such as Artissima or the Reggia di Venaria, this has been possible by identifying and pursuing priorities, which means deciding and not immediately satisfying all stakeholders; but if the identified priorities are to lead, often those who show discontent today will have to think again tomorrow, because growth and development will be guaranteed and it will benefit everyone. 

      “Turin and the people of Turin know how to proceed by priority, they only need to remember it. And today this award does not go to a single person, but to a group that has been able to decide based on its priorities.”
