Stefano Bettarini is a very famous footballer in Italy, more because of his ex-wife Simona Ventura (famous Italian Showgirl) and the betting scandal than for his football abilities. But Bettarini is a decent defender who was even called to the italian NT last year. Last year, as I mentionend - he was included to a betting scandal and he was suspended until today, so its the best time to buy him ;)
I think "Il Bello" may be the experience that we need in defence, I am happy with this buy.

Yeah, he'll need time before he gets useful... Still a good move considering our current situation. A cheap, experienced defender who can be useful.

Bettarini has been presented today, he will wear the number 2 shirt. I saw a little bit of the presentation, he said that he always wants to play, even in the midweek matches and that he is not the one who will save Parma from relegation but he will try to help us.
