Parma - PR
Description:

Typology: Parma manner of speaking in parmesan dialect

Meaning: esor trid cme l'Albania in parmesan dialect means being poor, resourceless.

Origins:
the idiom doesn't refer to the country but to a brand of tabacco, L'Albania, produced by the Ducal tabacco mill, which had its seat in the charterhouse of Vicopò. Like tobacco, somehow, a ragged and miserable person is "trid", which means flogged, minced and chopped.
