This project Bolsa de Estágio de Pesquisa no Exterior (BEPE) will be developed at the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, in Lima, between September 25 and November 25, 2018, under the supervision of the Professor Carlota Casalino Sen. Through the research in the archives and libraries of the city, such as the Riva-Agüero Institute and the National Library of Peru, I will seek to understand the reception of public monuments in the urban space, expressions of support and contestation of the public statuary project developed by Lima's elites for the city between 1859 and 1915. In addition to the three monuments discussed in the project in Brazil, Colombo (1860), Combate Dos de Mayo (1874) and Francisco Bolognesi (1905), will be included the monuments to Manuel Candamo (1912) and Ramón Castilla (1915), disregarded by the historiography and which are cases of special interest for the proposed theme. I will also seek to recover the historical trajectory of construction of the mentioned monuments. The project presented here is in dialogue with my master's research developed in Brazil, so that its accomplishment will be beneficial to me. Finally, the stay in Peru will allow me to give a presentation at an important scientific event, the 6th International Congress of History Students of the UNMSM. The opportunity to attend university libraries and bookstores, talk to researchers and access the recent Peruvian historiographic production will have great importance for my intellectual formation.
