JUVENTUS FOOTBALL CLUB S.P.A.
Founded in Turin in 1897 by a group of local students, under the name of Sport Club Juventus, the world renowned Juventus Footbal Club S.p.A. (also known locally as Juve) is the third oldest football club in Italy. Linked to the Agnelli family ever since the 1920s, the club has always played in the highest category in the Italian championships (known since 1929 as the “A League”) ever since its foundation (with the sole exclusion of the 2006-2007 season).
Nominated during the 20th century by the International Institute of Football History & Statistics (with recognition by the FIFA), as one of the best football clubs in Italy and the second on a European level, in 1988 Juventus FC was awarded a special recognition as the first team in the history of football on a continental level, to have won all three major competitions: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup and UEFA Europa League. In addition with the victory in 1985 of the Intercontinental Cup, Juventus became (and still detains the primacy) the only club in the world to have won at least once, all the official trophies on an international level.
The Juventus Museum, is situated on the eastern entrance of the recently inaugurated Juventus Stadium. Built by the architect Benedetto Camerana, and opened on the 16th May 2012, the museum is the first official football exhibition center dedicated to this famous Turin based team.
Amongst the many exhibits, the museum holds a collection of t-shirts of the most important players in the history of the football team, team trophies, interactive areas and historical team photos, as well as a dedicated area in memory of the Heysel victims, created in honour of the 25th anniversary of the massacre.
