The aim of this article is to analyze Revista Americana as a tool of Itamaraty's new strategy of drawing Brazil and the rest of South America closer together, highlighting the role of diplomacy in the recently proclaimed Republic. This periodical illustrates how certain elements of cultural diplomacy were highly valued, elements which were crucial for the construction of a new identity for the South American continent based on its own specific characteristics.
