Parma have confirmed the arrival of Ascoli defender Massimo Loviso on a co-ownership basis.
The 29-year-old was virtually ever-present for the Picchio last term, playing 34 games for the eventually-relegated Serie B side.
Roberto Donadoni's team though, have bought 50 per cent of the centre-back for an undisclosed fee.
Loviso graduated from the Bologna youth ranks and has had spells at Livorno, Torino and Crotone.
