LOHN, Reinaldo Lindolfo. Brazilian urban space: between dictatorship and democracy - the case of Florianopolis, SC (1964-1990). Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.47, pp.162-181. ISSN 0103-2186.

This article discusses the interventions in urban space during the military dictatorship and the early years of the recent political democratization of Brazil, focusing on the case of Florianopolis, capital of Santa Catarina, between 1964 and 1990. During this period several social groups mobilized against the authoritarian State, but market relations took a prominent role in shaping cities like Florianopolis, which conflicted with the efforts of democratization of urban space. The question that motivates the work is the study of interactions between urban form imposed during the dictatorship and the social uses configured for democratic coexistence.

Keywords : space; place; dictatorship; democracy; urban culture; present time.
