About Us

We are a publishing house that inherits a heritage of three decades of culture of dialogue and a positive view of the reality around us. We collect this past in a present that encourages us to create and discover meeting spaces in the society that serve to inspire, promote and help create community and a network of fraternal relationships.

We firmly believe that open, empathetic and inclusive dialogue is the best tool for a better society, and we put this into practice with 4 annual monographic issues in paper and online, a blog, some events or our social networks. We publish all our content in two languages: Catalan and Spanish.

Using various journalistic forms of presentation as interviews, reports, news, commentaries, the magazine is presenting persons and initiatives that are promoting peace and improving understanding and collaboration among persons, generations and peoples.

It is particularly interested in all topics around relationships: between persons, Christian denominations, religions, also between believers and persons without religious reference. It is reporting about the efforts of individuals and small communities to align their daily lives with the words of Jesus from the Gospel.

Editora Cidade Nova



About Us

Editora Cidade Nova wants to contribute through its publications to the promotion and diffusion of a culture of fraternity. It is therefore concerned with highlighting values such as peace, solidarity, justice, respect for diversity, dialogue, tolerance, sharing, dignity and human rights.

The aim is to reach as many people as possible and, through reading, foster the encounter of men and women of all ages, social conditions, religious denominations. This objective is based on the conviction that the human being is called to love and that the history, despite its conflicts and contradictions, travels a path towards a more united world.

Through the magazine and books it publishes, Editora Cidade Nova offers instruments of life and reflection in the various spheres of life, personal, family and social, and deals with various fields of action and knowledge: politics, economics, theology, philosophy, art, environment, education… favoring intercultural and interreligious dialogue.

Its editorial line is rooted in the spiritual values of the human being, being inspired by the Spirituality of the Unity of the Focolare Movement.

Managing Director


About Us

The Città Nuova publishing group was created to spread a culture linked to the values of dialogue and inclusion.

The books, magazines and digital content published offer a contribution of ideas and proposals for the construction of the common good and are an instrument at the service of the person and society, for a culture oriented towards unity and a renewed humanism.

The project moves in the footsteps of the thought and action of Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare Movement, promoter of communion between peoples, cultures and religions.

The publishing house, founded in 1960, began dealing with spirituality, patrology and theology. In a short time, it broadened its interests to the great world of the human sciences: philosophy, psychology and pedagogy, sociology, economics and politics. In more recent times, to its already extensive catalogue (over 2000 titles), it has added publications on current topics, biographies, various non-fiction and books for children and teenagers. Today it publishes about 65 new titles a year.

Città Nuova magazine, born on July 14, 1956, is a monthly magazine of opinion, surveys, politics, economics, international pages, family and society, culture, environment, health and sport, art and entertainment.

On its website www.cittanuova.it every day appear news, reflections and insights from Italy and the entire world.

About Us

The aim of New City publications is to promote a more united world through both the monthly magazine and the books it publishes and to support and inform its readers about the value of dialogue in many different fields.

The primary mission of New City books is to publish works by Chiara Lubich, founder of Focolare, and by others inspired by her spirituality of unity. It also publishes works, both scholarly and popular, that deal with social issues and religion from the patristic era to the present age and which actively encourage a vision of the one human family. Since 1978 New City has published more than 60 books.
New City’s sister publishing house in North America is called New City Press, of which New City until recently was their distributor in the UK. This web page contains both New City and New City Press books.

The first edition of New City covered December 1970 and January 1971. It consisted of just 8 pages in black and white with one concession to colour: a blue ‘New City’ banner on the front cover. Cost 8p! In the editorial it is described as the ‘newsletter of the Focolare Movement’. Its predecessor was called ‘Focolare News’. For many years New City consisted of articles translated mainly from the Italian magazine Citta Nuova into English. However, over the years, the majority of articles are now home grown and we currently enjoy contributions from around thirty English-speaking writers. Despite the changes over the years both in its format and the introduction of colour the main vision of the magazine has remained constant over these years.
