AMICCI, Daniel. Strategic South American capitals become concrete: Brazilian achievement and Argentinean deferment. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2012, vol.57, n.216, pp.59-79. ISSN 0185-1918.

In this paper, the author analyzes the efforts to ensure strategic capitals for the two largest countries of South America, outlining and comparing Raúl Alfonsin's incomplete initiative to move the Argentine national capital to Patagonia in 1986 and the successful foundation of Brasilia by Juscelino Kubistchek in 1960. It is proposed that a series of factors, including economic, political and social, as well as the role of the media and symbolic constructions, could explain this contrast. The research established, beyond the specific differences of each course of history, the main causes of the failure of Argentina governmentplan filed in the implementation of a clearly untimely decision, executed with reckless spontaneity in a climate of social tension and deep economic crisis, an inherited product from the most extreme dictatorship that the country knew.

Palavras-chave : strategic capitals; Buenos Aires; Brasilia; Raúl Alfonsín; Juscelino Kubistchek.
