Parma's first major success was winning the 1990 Ronchetti Cup, beating Jedinstvo Tuzla in the final. This was followed by a second Ronchetti trophy in 1993. The team also reached the final in 1994, 1995 and 1997, but lost to Ahena Cesena, CJM Bourges and CSKA Moscow respectively. After winning the 1998 Coppa Italia, in 2000 it again reached the final and defeated CB Islas Canarias to win its third title, which makes it the second most successful team in the competition along with CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow.[2]

In 2001 Parma won both the Serie A and the national cup, and the following year it reached the Euroleague's Final Four, where it was beaten by Lotos Gdynia and defeated MBK Ruzomberok to attain a bronze. In addition, it successfully defended its cup title. The team hasn't won any more trophies since then. It has made three more appearances in the Euroleague (2003–05), and four appearances in the Eurocup (2006–09).[3]
