Abstract

Este artigo resulta de uma investigação efetuada sobre a Praça de Touros do Campo Pequeno, inaugurada em 1892, e, desde logo, considerada um dos edifícios mais emblemáticos da cidade de Lisboa. Apesar da história desta praça já ter sido abordada por outros autores, este artigo aprofunda esses estudos, sob a perspectiva da história da arte do final do século XIX, quer sob o ponto de vista da análise da arquitectura revivalista do edifício, quer sob o ponto de vista da sua integração num bairro lisboeta que estava então a ser planeado, as Avenidas Novas. Como peça de arquitectura em si mesma, a Praça de Touros tem poucos paralelos contemporâneos, quer ao nível nacional, quer internacional, intercruzando, com originalidade um revivalismo estilístico de matriz romântica, com elementos de modernidade, expressos no tijolo e
no ferro que materialmente lhe dão corpo

This article is the result of an investigation about the Bullring of Campo Pequeno, which was inaugurated in 1892, being today one of the most emblematic buildings of the city of Lisbon. Although the history of this building has already been approached by other authors, this is a theme that worth is to be developed from the point of view of the history of art and the history of the nineteenth century, both from the point of view of the analysis of the revivalist architecture of the building, either from the point of view of its integration into a Lisbon area that was then being planned, the Avenidas Novas. In addition, the relevance of this building should be emphasized, in particular since it has few contemporary parallels, both at national and international level; and also, because its construction with brick and iron was an element of modernity that must be underlined. Furthermore, this study is a contribution to the field of Olisipography, which is specialised study in Lisbon's history.
