115 years of Inter: the rest is history
Club— Mar 8th 2023
The video, the celebrations, the official book: everything to celebrate the birthday of our Inter, founded on 9 March 1908
Our colours, our jerseys, our city. 9 March is our day, the day when brave young revolutionaries decided to make a change, driven by ideals that are still relevant today. 115 years ago, in the centre of Milan, our story began. It immediately spoke to the whole world, driven by an international desire, immediately fixed in the Club's name. On that night at the Orologio restaurant, the founding members also chose colours, those of the sky and night. And of the stars.
For 115 years, the Nerazzurri has made history: it has inspired, it has made millions of fans happy, it has created beautiful triumphs, it has told unique and unforgettable stories. In the background Milan, its growth, its development: it has become international, open to all. A journey together with Inter, a journey that does not stop, continues, is relaunched.
Inter Media House has recounted all this with a video that encapsulates the essence of this journey. Milan and its evolution, the Nerazzurri colours and our team's jerseys: many, iconic, memorable. These are the shirts worn by the champions, the ones we link to the most incredible moments in our history. And then there's the biscione, one of the symbols of our Inter: the Visconti biscione that stands out in the coats of arms, that was redesigned in the 1980s, that is imprinted on the 'skin' of our jerseys. And that goes to make up the logo that celebrates these first 115 years of Nerazzurri history.
9 MARCH, THE NIGHT OF OUR HISTORY
March, 1908. Milan, the heart of Milan. There is excitement. Giorgio Muggiani and Hans Rietmann agitate discussions, aiming to create a new association, driven by courage, a desire for inclusion. Places in the city centre host the organisation of what will be the evening that will consign our colours to history. The Spaten brewery and the Fiaschetteria Toscana are the first places where the Nerazzurri seed grows, officially planted at the Orologio restaurant. Piazza Duomo 22, behind the cathedral: a fashionable place, as the photos of the time testify. It is evening, and in the restaurant located where shops and bars now stand, fifteen people gather. Three hours of discussion result in a gesture: Muggiani, on a sheet of his father's headed paper, writes in pen. '9 March 1908. The founding gentlemen met this evening with the firm intention of founding a new club'. The names of those present and the name follow.
The discussion comes to an end at 23:30. Muggiani unleashes his artistic talent and draws the logo: 'On a gold background limited by two circles, blue and black, stand the white initials F.C.I.M.'. Forty-four people signed the constitution of the new club. The first president is Giovanni Paramithiotti, Muggiani is the secretary.
A series of dedicated products have been developed for the 115th anniversary, on sale at the Inter Store, the Inter Online Store, the Inter Official Marketplace on eBay and the Inter Official Brand Store on Amazon.
