In the Italian historiographical landscape, the «Nuova Rivista Storica» (New Historical Review) has changed its role after 93 years. It had been founded in dispute with the fragmented erudition and had grown to be a barrier against the prevailing idealism. Until the 1950s, its animators were mainly socialist, then, for half a century, it became a breeding ground for rigorous researches in their historiographical eclecticism. Now the opening towards the world of the non-specialists has been transformed, and realized in a disputable way: with polemic intentions, and of a revisionist stamp, one of the co-directors publishes (mainly on the review’s website) journalistic contributions which have nothing to do with historical research.
