The Brazilian modernist movement was collectively delineated from different groups and ideas. The magazines, characterized by agility and for being spaces of socialization, were privileged spokespersons for the movement. Throughout the 1920s, a list of titles was launched that put into circulation different perceptions of what modernism should mean. In 1931, in the city of São Paulo, Revista Nova (SP, 1931-1932) was published, under the responsibility of prominent names in the modernist movement, Mário de Andrade, Paulo Prado and Antonio de Alcântara Machado. The publication, which survived until the end of 1932, was inserted in a political context very different from that prevailing in the previous decade. The objective of the research is to systematically analyze the periodical that, despite its responsible, did not appear among the canonical publications of the movement. Thus, it is worth asking about the place that the journal occupied in the sociability networks of writers engaged in aesthetic renewal, as well as understanding the historiographical silence surrounding the publication that announced itself as new. It should be noted that the magazine has never been the subject of a facsimile edition, contrary to several of its predecessors, nor is it available in a virtual environment. It should also be added that it was the only magazine of the so-called São Paulo modernist group circulating at the time, which encourages us to investigate the singularities of Revista Nova.
