The Brazilian cities selected for this research, Maringá (PR) e Ribeirão Preto (SP), present evidence that indicates a process of socio-spatial fragmentation, characterized by the proliferation of enclosed spaces, such as controlled access allotments, shopping malls or private clubs, which prevent or hinder heterogeneity and coexistence between different classes and tend to devalue public spaces. In this context, we seek to understand the impact of this logic of urban production in the pair of public space - private space. Through the comparative analysis of the relationships present in selected public spaces in the two cities surveyed, we seek to question the possibilities and limitations of the practices present there, in the reversal of this fragmentary logic. The proposal is integrated with the FragUrb Thematic Project and part of the results of previous CI research (FAPESP 19/09982-7), such as the identification of heterogeneous audiences and diverse spatial practices in central public spaces in these cities.
