Parma F.C. played its sixth consecutive Serie A season, which was the last under legendary coach Nevio Scala, who stepped down at the end of the season. Defensive stalwarts Alberto Di Chiara and Lorenzo Minotti also left the club following the season's conclusion. Despite being only one point behind third-placed Lazio, Parma finished 6th in the standings. In contrast to the previous four seasons, Parma did not win any cups either. The most significant moment of Parma's season was the debut of the club's new superstar, 17-year old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who saved a penalty on his debut against A.C. Milan.
