The Resurrection of Parma
In 2015, the two-time UEFA Cup winners Parma were declared bankrupt and demoted to the amateur leagues. The famous club effectively ceased to exist. Rebuilt and reborn as Parma Calcio 1913, the team won three back-to-back promotions and is back in Serie A. We hear from Parma's former captain and hero, Alessandro Lucarelli, who stuck with the club through the bad times.
