SIDY, Bettina. The amusement of bulls in Buenos Aires: An analysis of the ties between recreation and city in the late colonial period. Cuadernos de Historia [online]. 2016, n.45, pp.7-28. ISSN 0719-1243.

In the second half of the 18th century the city of Buenos Aires experienced a rapid growth in demographic and political terms that triggered a process of diversification of the spaces of the city. In 1790 the construction of a bullring in the neighborhood of Montserrat began. However, its location unleashed discussions among political actors of the time about the show and its role in social control. At the same time the residents of the square were involved in the conflict because of the negative impact that the bulls hauled to the neighborhood. The aim of this paper is to analyze the site of the Circus of bulls and the conflicts generated, to rethink the issues arising from the political, economic and demographic growth of the city from the perspective of Recreational and socio-political function and incorporate the spatial variable to the political and economic discussions of the time.

Palavras-chave : colonial Buenos Aires; bullring; leisure; city.
