Hi Daniele,

AFAIK, you can't.  

You can certainly import your A4 page (File/Import) in a freshly
created tabloid-size document and then re-position the content to the
coordinate of your choice.  The page will be imported before or after
the blank tabloid page.  You can delete the blank tabloid page once
you have imported your A4 page into your document.

Don't you think, Scribus being a page-layout software, incorporating
the ability to change page-sizes would mean taking care of lots of
things and even then it wouldn't fill the bill in all the cases?  For
example, you might want to have your content centered in one case and
positioned altogether differently in another.  A fit-to-page option
would also change the font-sizes.  Don't you think that would result
in a less-than-the-best quality output?

I think there can be simply too many variations and taking care of all
that stuff would divert the developers' focus from the primary task of
improving the DTP features.  These are just my opinions!
