If you mention Gaetano Scirea, those who have had the good fortune of having seen him play live, and also those who have only been able to appreciate his exploits from archive footage immediately think of his elegance, his class, the triumphs he achieved in his career, and wearing the famous Black and White shirt.
Fans of statistics know that on 15 May 1988 Gaetano Scirea greeted his fans after taking the field against Fiorentina for the last of the 552 matches played with Juventus. Before Alessandro Del Piero and Gianluigi Buffon, no one had ever made so many appearances for the Bianconeri.
A complete and unique player, simply unforgettable.
Exactly 30 years after his death, on 3 September 1989 in Poland, Juventus Museum today inaugurated the temporary exhibition titled simply with his name: Gaetano Scirea.
Through unique videos, new material and priceless memorabilia (above all, the World Cup raised in Spain in 1982), the exhibition, located in the main hall of the Juventus Museum celebrates the history of "Gai" with Juventus. Featuring goals, many victories, and his path in the National team. His interviews and the testimonies of those who knew him as a teammate and as an adversary help to illustrate the portrait of a champion who is unparalleled in style, education and sense.
