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.

–  Mani Djazmi podcast from World Football program on BBC World Service, where we undeservedly participated.

So it started.

Hello from BBC.

It was not Bale-Benzema-Cristiano or Barzagli-Bonucci-Chiellini. Was THAT BBC: British Broadcasting Corporation. We received an email from Mani Djazmi, the presenter of World Football, a weekly program dedicated to most special stories in football world on BBC World Service, that was interested in realizing an episode totally dedicated to Parma renaissance.

So it started an incredible two-days in which we followed Mani in his interviews and researches. We had the chance to talk about football and give our small help to such a great expert and professional. We will never be enough thankful for that.

We could attend to Pietro Pizzarotti and Captain Lucarelli interviews in Collecchio Training Center, see coach an players pass in front of us at the end of morning training session, relaxed and focused on Saturday match. We step Tardini pitch with well known Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs (CCPC) President Angelo Manfredini that took us also to locker rooms and honor tribune and told us incredible stories about nineties glory days. Before the official interview, while we were in CCPC office, Sandro Melli, one of Wembley heroes, get into and had a coffee in front of us. Can you imagine?

We heard from Parma Partecipazioni Calcistiche (PPC) member Franco Bardiani words all the passion behind the popular action that together with Nuovo Inizio allowed Parma’s rebirth. We hate in Pepèn, well known Parmesan paninoteca and we went also to a football game in Correggio, in the deep Reggio Emilia province, where Parma played only three years ago. So many things that it was necessary three episodes to tell everything.

And now? Now Juve is coming. BBC World Football dedicates a whole program to Parma Calcio and we are so proud of all the people we met in these days. Until Parma will be made by these people we can really trust in an even brighter future.

Despite every result on Saturday night, believe us: be proud of what Parma Calcio is. It is made by great people, it is a family and, even if you are far, you are part of it anyway.
