RODRIGO RIBEIRO PAZIANI, RAFAEL CARDOSO DE MELLO

Abstract


The purpose of this article is to address the urban trajectory of Ribeirão Preto at the height of the coffee culture by the State of São Paulo during the First Republic (1890-1930). In this period, the local elite wanted to build a series of changes in the city’s urban landscape, what some visitors called at the time "Petit Paris". We also discuss the reinvention of urbanized areas and the new directions printed by the workers and popular classes of Ribeirão Preto, showing how his criticism of public authorities revealed the contradictions of the urban modernization process. This is a topic of great relevance to the study of urban history in Brazil, as part of the history of a city in the interior of Brazil with the aim of showing different readings of urban modernization processes.
