meaning of name?[edit]

What is the meaning of the name? In google translate, I get "the new trial," but presumably there is something more idiomatic. Does "trial" mean "experiment" here?--207.233.87.192 (talk) 23:36, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

"cimento" --> substantive from the verb "cimentare" / "cimentarsi" :
cimentare
1 vt (pazienza, persona) to try, to put to the test
2 cimentarsi vr
cimentarsi in qc to undertake (the challenge of) sth, to try one's hand at sth, to attempt, to take a stab at
cimentarsi con qn to compete with sb,
ps
in Italian the word "cimento" has a "flavour" which is widely poetic--79.17.129.23 (talk) 02:54, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
