Abstract

In this article we intend to analyse the definition of “palacete”, a typology of building generally defined as a small palace, associated with the rise and ennobling of the bourgeoisie in the 19th century. Although this issue has already been addressed by several art historians (França, 1990; Silva, 1997; Leal, 2005; Carita, 2017) it appears that, when we wish to clarify the identification parameters of this type of buildings, and when applied to the building reality, there are several fluctuations. This way, we propose to study the evolution of the word “palacete”, associating it with a systematic work on epochal sources that has never been carried out until today. Afterwards, we will try to identify the buildings that have been so called, the chronology of their construction and characterize their owners. After carrying out this extensive and critical inventory, we will return to the designation of “palacete” that should have several subtypes.

No presente artigo pretendemos problematizar a designação palacete, tipologia de edifício geralmente definido como palácio pequeno, associado à ascensão e nobilitação da burguesia no século XIX. Muito embora esta questão já tenha sido abordada por diversos historiadores de arte (França, 1990; Silva, 1997; Leal, 2005; Carita, 2017) constata-se que, ao desejarmos clarificar os parâmetros de identificação deste tipo de edifícios, quando aplicados à realidade do edificado, há diversas flutuações. Pretendemos, deste modo, historiar a evolução do uso da palavra palacete, associando-o a um trabalho sistemático sobre fontes epocais que até ao presente nunca foi realizado. No ponto subsequente, procuraremos identificar os edifícios que assim têm sido denominados, a cronologia da sua construção e caracterizar os seus proprietários. Depois da realização deste inventário alargado e crítico, voltaremos à designação de palacete que deverá albergar diversos subtipos.
