Fiat 500 not starting after prolonged time in garage without use

Hi, my 500 (1973) was working fine and was stored in the garage for over a year without using including over winter just before the lockdown, when I've gone to start the car in turns over but will not start, battery is charged, i even change the battery. Is this a common problem and is there a quick remedy, any advise would be great
thanks

Hi

You have posted in the 2000's 'popemobile' 500l section..

Your car may just want fresh fuel..

And a check of points gap and airfilter for debris
