the-new-york-times-logo-featured.jpg

Almost one month ago The New York Times published a reportage about Parma Calcio renaissance. The New  York  Times. Someone said we were going to disappear and be forgotten.

We list the article in our “Nobody will ever talk about Parma anymore” section dedicated to fundamental articles and podcast about Parma Calcio.

Here is Rory Smith‘s reportage with Nadia Shira Cohen pictures, a recap of our recent history with focus on new era that just begun:

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.

Thank you, guys

 

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.

These Football Times talking about Parma Calcio

We would like to report a very complete and accurate article about our recent history on These Football Times written by Gary Thacker @All_Blue_Daze , that we would like to officially thank.

Soon it will be listed on a specific section of our website that we are preparing dedicated to Parma Calcio best reportages and articles.

“Alessandro Lucarelli: Parma’s selfless hero who took them from the fourth tier back to Serie A”

Waiting for someone making a movie about Parma Calcio 1913, enjoy these words and realize that history can’t be deleted, and it is all to be written.

Manuel has a message for you

Manuel Scavone goes to Lecce on loan for one year. It would be too romantic to keep all the historical crusaders of our recent history, but it is not possible. Even if players like him wrote our history with important goals like in Lega Pro play-off finals.

Scavone special link with Parma is underlined by his words before leaving, that the players asked to spread to all Crusaders fans:

“With these words I would like to greet and thank all people that are writing me… I didn’t expect to receive so many care messages! I’m proud of what we could do in these years and I’m happy to have been part of it! I will remember for all my life Florence and Spezia days… Bye to everybody, Manuel”

This is the Parma we like to tell.

Good luck, Manuel!

New Parma kits will be like…

From: “La maglia del cuore. Parma, I colori della passione” by Carlo Fontanelli and Michele Tagliavini, Geo edizioni – graphic project by Studio Makia srl

We don’t have a crystal ball to know the future but we can play trying to guess if next kit will be inspired by some historical kit Parma used in its history.

Past years, expecially for third kit, Erreà and Parma decided to get inspired by particular jersey, who knows if also this year will be the same?

Having a look to fundamental two volumes archive book “La maglia del cuore. Parma, I colori della passione” by Carlo Fontanelli and Michele Tagliavini, Geo edizioni and graphics project by Studio Makia srl, we can get some great suggestion on future kits.

If you are interested in the book you can find it here and on Geo edizioni page. The suggestion is to write directly to them to ordine@bibliotecadelcalcio.com for all the info or ask us, as usual, and will be your intermediary.

Geo edizioni is also the publisher of “Parma 100. Tutto ma proprio tutto sui crociati“.
