Parma, 18 March 2022Parma Calcio 1913, will celebrate today’s National Day of Remembrance for the victims of Covid-19, during our league match against Lecce on Saturday at the Ennio Tardini stadium.

The Crociati club will remember those who have lost their lives due to the pandemic with two community moments, and more specifically two symbolic testimonies of professional categories. These are among the most affected by Covid-19 with regards lives lost and proximity to Parma Calcio 1913.

There will be a memory for the Fire Brigade and for the doctors, in particular for the families of Giorgio Gardini, inspector of the Fire Brigade who was frequently on duty at the stadium, and for Manfredo Squeri, head of Medicine and historical subscriber of Parma Calcio 1913. Both were among the very first victims of Covid-19, in March 2020. They fell ill while undertaking their daily professional commitment.

A commitment that has been carried forward with the love for their work and, above all, for those they help. For this reason our club, together with the Crociati fans, wants to commemorate them as the symbol of a battle that has impacted and changed the lives of all of us.
