On Thursday 15 October, we were guests of the Museo del Grande Torino e della Leggenda Granata (http://www.museodeltoro.it/). The occasion was the delivery of the 150 Gigi Meroni Celebrative Stickers, donated by our Association to be able to sell at the Museum as contribution to their activities (https://figurineforever.com/en/2020/07/06/celebrative-sticker-7-meroni-2/)
We were received by Giampaolo Muliari, Director and Domenico Beccaria, President. We were overwhelmed by their passion for the history of this incredible club, but also (above all) their great stubbornness and professionalism in carrying on the Museum, a symbol of culture and sport.
History of our country far beyond the Granata colors and just football. Incredible if we think that the Museum is entirely managed by volunteers and an Association, without the help of major sponsors and, even more unheard of, without the support of the Torino FC. Probably the strength of this museum lies precisely in this particular, the mere gain at the expense of quality, which often distinguishes several museums managed directly by clubs.
The visit to the Museum was an unforgettable experience, with many exhibits covering over 100 years of history. Great emphasis on the period of the Grande Torino who disappeared in Superga (it couldn’t be otherwise), but a lot of pre-war material, from the 1960s in the memory of Gigi Meroni, from the last championship in 1976 to the present day. There are also references to the brotherhood teams and museums, Fiorentina and in particular River Plate and Benfica.
A visit to the Museum is a once in a lifetime experience. It doesn’t matter if you are a Torino fan or not, it doesn’t matter if you are interested in football or not. Treat yourself to a couple of hours of legend!
