This PhD Project has the Municipal Theatre of Sao Paulo as its research theme, looking for describe, for the first time in the academic sphere, its physical history. Our propose is to study in details its architectural and artistic aspects, from its conception in 1900s until nowadays. After over one hundred years of existence and successive interventions (refurbishment and restores from the decades of 1950, 1980 and 2000), we believe it's critically important to investigate the process of its history and the artwork which complete it, in the painting form, sculptures, mosaics, stained glass, securities and several decorative elements. The Municipal Theatre, besides being part of the artistic Brazilian patrimony, is a living artistic organism which connects to Sao Paulo's transformations. Thus we propose a study about its perennial and changeable aspects. Its architectural set's knowledge, its artworks, its authors, styles and techniques, and its life through the time imposes to the deep knowledge of its role as architectonic and artistic landmark, and the cultural stage of Sao Paulo city's and Brazil's first order. Our goal is to analyze how the Municipal radiates and secures, as a full artwork, in the collective imaginary looking it on the research in periodical and the several media. (AU)
