This article presents the findings of a study on social representations among dwellers who have lived in the Historical Center for several decades. It shows how their representations are a living memory of the everyday social life and also reflects its monumental and historical aspects. The study was carried out during the gentrification process of the Historical Center and it reflects the burden of this policy on its old dwellers.
