BOTELHO, Tarcísio R.. Revitalização de centros urbanos no Brasil: uma análise comparativa das experiências de Vitória, Fortaleza e São Luís. EURE (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.31, n.93, pp.53-71. ISSN 0250-7161.

The study of urban revitalization processes has taken pride of place in the studies of contemporary urban dynamics, given their frequency and broad scope. In the last few decades, they have stood out, among a variety of revitalization processes, for their ability to incorporate “culture” as a differentiating content. In this article, I evaluate the part the heritage has played in the latest attempts at revitalizing the historical areas of Vitória (ES), Fortaleza (CE) and São Luís (MA), placing special emphasis on the role of the public power to enforce successful revitalization policies. In my opinion, the revitalization processes included in this paper point to innovative articulations among the players involved in them, once they comprise urban historical complexes with items of different values and are subject to local governments more or less committed to the revitalization of urban centers
