Within two days of the first issue being published, copies were seized from all newsstands in Italy. The magazine ceased publication in 1981, coinciding with the imprisonment of the editorial board on charges of belonging to the Brigate Rosse, a paramilitary group held responsible for numerous violent incidents during the "Anni di Piombo," including assassinations, kidnappings, and robberies. Contributors to the publication included Lanfranco Pace, Oresta Scalzone, Franco Berardi, Franco Piperno, Toni Negri, and Lauso Zagato. As of February 2015, OCLC locates one holding in North America.
