We are used to such kind of posts after every lost match. Most of the times we remind bankruptcy, the rough fields and stands in serie D, some epic match in Lega Pro. A “memory exercise” like this is what helps a community to keep united, in victories and in loss. Especially in loss.
Boys Parma 1977 knows well what a Community – write community, read Family – is. 42 years of “don’t forget” moments, lived together: fun, loss, screams, chants, travels, tears. Tears like the ones for Matteo Bagnaresi, the Ultras, the Boys member tragically passed away 11 years ago. Curva Nord is named after him. Every day, every match his memory is celebrated with the introducing chant: “Curva Nord Matteo Bagnaresi” is proudly screamed at the beginning of every game to the field and to the sky.
Yesterday a huge flag covered the entire Curva Nord with his nick name “Bagna” and the words “Model, undestructable symbol”.
Memory. Memory is important. Shared memories define a Community.
Never forget where we come from and who we are.
