Parma's football legends celebrate city's past

The city of Parma in Northern Italy has fewer than 200,000 inhabitants, but in the 1990s it boasted one of the strongest Italian and European football clubs.

Times have changed and the club, following a bankruptcy, was even relegated for one season.

As Parma celebrates the club's centenary this year with a legends football match, the BBC looks at a city steeped in history, its football club, and its identity.
