Fausto Pizzi is the new manager of Jiangsu Suning Football Club youth area in Shenyang.
Pizzi has been the man behind rebuilding of Parma Calcio Youth area after bankruptcy and who brought Parma conquering first trophy of his new history, under 15 Scudetto on 17 June 2017 and also a well known protagonist of Wembley night when we won Winners Cup agains Anversa.
We told you already Frambo story in that episode with Cassano in this article “Where we come from” that also link to a fundamental article by Roger Paul Mitchell.
We told about a t-shirt sale for pediatric hospital fund raising. Well, to prove the truth of what we were talking about this is a picture taken in Tardini Tribuna Ovest with two kids wearing “I’m with Frambo” t-shirt on Sunday 19th night match against Udinese.
It is the proof that it was not a matter of ultras violence nor a personalistic “taking the scene”. It was a matter or humanity, a matter of a fan representative asking respect for a Curva, for a worldwide fans base, even for a whole town.
Fans in Parma knows it and not just Curva ones. Everybody should know.
We found the pic on Facebook- thanks to Cesare Frambati to let us publish here – but we saw these kids with our own eyes. And it was not the first time it happened even if more than three years passed from the episode. That episode, between others, represents our proud reaction to who hurt us.
Parma vs Udinese represents a milestone in PFW history. It was the first time we organized a meeting with abroad fans, in which we helped some of them to get tickets, in which some of them joined officially a Parma Club and used the membership card for discount in Tardini shop.
Little things for the most, important for us: the network is growing.
We met some fans from UK, Slovenia and Croatia in CCPC office, an historical place at Tardini gate, where some trophies are guarded. We made purchase in Official merchandise shop with 10% discount, join Official Parma Club Crociati Balkan member – born from historical Parma Boys Balkan Facebook group – to watch the match together, even meeting player after match for pictures signing.
A long day, ended with a coming back home in late night for someone, early morning for someone else.
Thought we could but no. Maybe we are scared of awakening. And if all that was a dream? Awakening can be frustrating.
How many things today?
Drinking a coffee in front of Winners Cup, meeting people from abroad that we helped with tickets, got a scarf as gift from Angelo Manfredini, tie Crociati Balkan banner with Dejan, meeting players after match, driving home and discover that New York Times – NEW YORK TIMES – dedicated a reportage to Parma Calcio. To US.
There again after more or less 1000 days. Using Rory Smith words:
“There is a sense of order being restored, that everything is in its rightful place once more, that things are — at last — how they used to be.”
That. Nothing less. Maybe something more. We are sure there is probably something more now, but we exactly don’t know what it is.
Maybe tomorrow we will understand. If we could ever get sleep.
In Italy, match is available for DAZN subscribers and is not available for free.
What it is available – as we already anticipate – is Radio Bruno radio commentary with Parma fan journalist Luca Bertelli. At the moment in which we write – we are in Tardini now – they confirmed at 90% streaming will be available.
