What a difference a year makes. On the surface of things, little has changed. Juventus, founded in 1897, also celebrated the club’s anniversary twelve months ago on 1 November. And the special occasion again fell after a fine victory in Milan.
But if you look elsewhere, the reasoning soon becomes clear. Antonio Conte’s entertaining side have risen to the top of the Serie A championship and the club now has its own home – the state of the art Juventus Stadium – opened just a couple of months back.
1 November is also an important day for Andrea Agnelli and his family. The President’s father, the late Umberto, was born on this date in 1934.
