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.
After every lost match, don’t forget where we come from.
Bari, like us, restarted from serie D. Yesterday, they won an away match against Locri 0 – 3 and one of the scorers was present captain Valerio Di Cesare, who played with us in Lega Pro and Serie B.
We can’t stop watching the video, we just hope that the enthusiast Bari supporter didn’t hurt too much.
A curiosity is that in Bari play other two Parma fans known players: Luca Cacioli (35 matches, 1 goal in 2015/16) and Roberto Floriano, the former Foggia forward who scored the draw goal to Frosinone in Frosinone vs Foggia that let us been promoted and that won a personal instant chorus dedicated by Parma Fans.
