History and profile[edit]

Cinema Nuovo was established by film critic Guido Aristarco in 1952.[1][2] The first issue was published in Milan on 15 December 1952.[3] The founding company was La Scuola, Arzigliano.[3] Guido Aristarco also directed the magazine, which first published fortnightly and from the July-August 1958 issue it became bimonthly.[3] The magazine had offices in Rome, Paris, New York City, Mexico City and Prague.[3]

Cinema Nuovo had a Marxist stance and was one of the targets of the Italian government like other left-leaning publications.[4] Guido Aristarco supported neorealist cinema of Italy through his articles in the magazine.[2] Joseph Grieco was among the editors-in-chief[3] and Rudi Berger was one of the contributors.[5] From 1954 to 1956 Cesare Zavattini published photo-essays in Cinema Nuovo.[6]

The magazine folded in 1996.[1] Spanish film magazine Nuestro Cine modeled on Cinema Nuovo and followed the approach of Guido Aristarco.[7] The other Spanish film magazine inspired by Cinema Nuovo and its founder Guido Aristarco was Objetivo.[8][9]
