Nobody will ever talk about Parma anymore

bbc_resurrection of parma

“Nobody will ever talk about Parma anymore” so they said on the other side of the river Enza, Reggiana supporters. We don’t call them Reggio Audace, in respect for their history (whatever it is) because football is made by fans, not by chairmen, televisions or courthouses.

Well, they was wrong.

Here and AT THIS UPDATED LINK you find a list of articles or podcasts about us. Something you can not miss at all and that can help you remember part of our history, the feeling of being in Tardini Curva Nord, the taste and the atmosphere there was and there is in Parma.

You red correctly.

As during high school time, we are collecting adhesion for a special gift for our Captain Alessandro Lucarelli, to be ready before Christmas time.

It is not a matter of money, we will not ask for that, but of a bit dedication.

If you are looking for a way say thank you to this man, you probably found how to.

Write us on info@parmafansworldwide or on usual social channels and, please, keep the secret with Alessandro!

We deserved it all

“Right three years ago we played in a province pitch… today we conquered San Siro”

 

We don’t mind if we risk to be redundant, we deserved where we are.

After lost matches we use to post articles not to forget where we come from. Well, today we celebrate in quite the same way.

Yesterday, two friends posted these pictures taken exactly at three years distance: first one taken in Borgo San Lorenzo, a little village in Florence province where Parma won 0-5 in 2015 serie D season, and the second on saturday evening in San Siro stadium, after victory against Inter Milan.

Two friends and the same passion despite different leagues. How long these three years were! Such a long way to La Scala del Calcio.

You deserved it all guys. We all deserved it all!

Com’on Crusaders, don’t forget it is still a long way.

Thanks to Massimo and Christian, that Kindly allowed us to post their pics and share their story.

Osvaldo Casanova on Parma Calcio

Osvaldo Casanova Parma Calcio prints – www.parmafansworldwide.com

We already talked about him while presenting our logo, the Hidden Crusader, because he is the author of the original illustration from which was created.

Osvaldo Casanova is an italian illustrator, proud fan of LR Vicenza Virtus, that works mainly but not exclusively on football theme.

Here you can see the three complete works that Osvaldo dedicated to Parma Calcio in last three years and that we asked him to print for us. They represent the most iconic moments of our past and recent history and are absolutely stunnnig, in our opinion.

If anyone is interested in having a copy too, can contact him directly at info@thankyoufortheroses.com

Before doing it we strongly suggest to wonder around his website and his facebook pages: you will discover some illustration we don’t hesitate call them masterpieces.

Now we all are waiting for more history to be written and, of course, illustrated.

History is a door

We know that all of you when go – or when will go – to Parma bring back home some memorabilia. The ticket is not enough and the Official merchandise neither: you need something more personal. Something that would tell you about that specific moment: Curva Nord Boys fanzine, stickers, advertisement poster with a Parma logo on, etc. because these object would represent a piece of history, a piece of your history in Parma.

Objects are guardians of our memories, especially for away fans like us that can’t follow the team every week, but once or twice a year.

Walking in Collecchio Training center or in Tardini restricted areas is an experience, and who had the luck to do it can confirm it. Think about how many players and coaches walked there, changed before a match, talked, fought, had fun.

Think about all the players and coaches that spend part of their life there: how many times they changed in Tardini locker room ? how many laughs or fights did that walls see?

In Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs – CCPC offices, the little yellow building at the left of Tardini Gate that some of you started to know because is the place where we met with all the abroad fans before the matches, there is one of these “memory objects”. It is a door. That door was threw away during some Tardini locker room renewal and people of CCPC found it and decided to use it in their office, creating specifically a wall for it.

That one, was the old Parma locker room door and on it you can read the signatures of some of most famous names in our 90s history. Some of them are clear: Taffarel, Brolin, Buffon, Di Vaio, Simplicio… If that door could speak!

To be honest inside that place there are plenty memory objects and most of all there are people that are the real Parma Calcio memory guardians, and they are more than kind. If you go there for visit in Parma bring and italian dictionary and knock at their door. If they have free time they surely be happy to tell you some story about Faustino Asprilla or Hernan Crespo. And we are not talking about some newspaper gossips, but about real life stories because the majority of these champions were – and still are -for real part of Parma family and memory guardians are there to testify it.
