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:
🗞️ The New York Times – Back From the Dead, Parma Embraces a Soccer Renaissance by Rory Smith @RorySmith (with Nadia Shira Cohen pictures), Aug 2018
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.
