The research project's main objective is to understand the process of transformation of Ipiranga hill in a civic center designed to provide the city of São Paulo of a monumental stage for the Independence Centenary celebrations held in 1922. This process included the conversion of the museums in a national history museum, the construction of a sculptural monument in charge of the Italian sculptor Ettore Ximenes, and the landscape modifications of Independence Park. This project focuses specifically the process of creating this landscape project, conceived in 1920 by the Brazilian Reynaldo Dierberger, who adopted in frontiersmen gardens Museu Paulista, a composition wide guard resemblance to the garden of the Palais du Trocadéro, located in Paris, and designed by Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand in 1878. The aim is to understand the choice of this Parisian quote, placing it in the broadcast frame and movement of French landscape models of the Second Empire in the West, in order to detect the reworkings created by Dierberger this process of appropriation of urban civility and embellishing models referenced in Paris.
