CAMPOS, CANDIDO MALTA. A cidade no pensamento brasileiro, do século XVI ao século XX. Estud. av. [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.95, pp.177-190. ISSN 0103-4014.

The assertion of modern urban planning in Brazil cannot evade persistent visions of the role of cities in the country’s life, of the relevance, validity or character of our urbanization process, or of the vices and virtues of the urban world. In order to elucidate some of these visions, we may consult formative texts of local knowledge - from colonial writers rediscovered in the 19th century to the emergence of a dominating notion of “Brazilian culture” in the work of Gilberto Freyre. Along this trajectory different images and projections can be seen in which the urban milieu is regarded either as the imposing official space of Europeanization, or as displaying its physical and moral deficiencies, although more often simply disappearing in favor of the prevailing image of an “essentially” rural country.

Palavras-chave : History of urbanism; Brazilian cities; Colonial period; 16th to 20th century.
