Cosmo Argento was a series of science fiction books published in Italy by Editrice Nord starting from October 1970. Differently from the similar re-prints collection Cosmo Oro, it usually consisting of translations of US books previously unpublished in the country. Authors included US most famous science fiction writers, such as Philip J. Farmer, Jack Vance, Frederik Pohl, John Brunner, Gordon R. Dickson, Larry Niven and others. Original works by Italian authors were regularly published also.

The series reduced substantially in quality and frequency of publication in the 2000s, and ceased publication with issue #337 in January 2005 (The Phoenix Exultant by John C. Wright).
