Parma were relegated from Serie A in 2015 but were sent to the fourth division after running into financial trouble.
They re-formed as Parma Calcio 1913 and won the Serie D title last season, and although they could only finish second this year, they made it through a 28-team playoff to earn promotion, capped by Saturday’s win.
