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?--22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:36, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
"cimento" --> substantive from the verb "cimentare" / "cimentarsi" :

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,
