“The strength of an idea
It all began with a bench on Corso Re Umberto, one of the most famous streets in city centre Turin.
A group of friends congregated on this bench. They all possessed a shared passion for football, a special game that had recently been ‘imported’ from England. They had an intriguing idea, to create a sports club. The boys attended the ‘Massimo D’Azeglio’ high school which specialised in classical studies. They were well educated but the eldest was just 17 years of age. This paved the way for the club’s name. In Latin, the name ‘Juventus’ means youth. They weren’t aware of it yet, but on 1 November 1897, they had given birth to a legend.
And so Italy’s greatest football team was born, almost by chance.”

"On December 3rd, 1906, at the Voigt (bar Norman today), located on Via Pietro Micca, the Torino Football Club was born. The first game took place on December 16th, 1906, and Torino won 3-1 against Pro Vercelli.
The years of President Ferruccio Novo and captain Valentino Mazzola saw a team that won five titles in a row, was the first team to win the Scudetto - Coppa Italia double (1943) and had ten players playing in the national team.
The glory years were tragically interrupted on March 4th 1949 at 17.05, when the plane taking the players home after a match against Benfica crashed into the Superga Basilica."
