Abstract

Since the first manifestations of what was agreed to be called civilization, humanity has been considering cities and urbanity relations the main centers for socialization and political interaction in people’s lives and daily activities. The birth of cities allowed the formation of cooperation groups, which despite being created from shared work and urban social duties, got together for the same objectives in their communities and were interdependent. Nevertheless, many times such groups were under tension and conflict as contingent residence places and shared geographic centers were rarely based on interests in social interaction, or sharing projects and affectivity. Therefore, cities were consolidated as centers for socialization, and manifestations of interests and collective interrelations, as well as privileged stages for social constructions, disputes, conflicts and witnesses of social histories.
