In this article, we analyze the notion of cultural heritage within the process of production and restructuring of the city, understanding as historically urban and architectural interventions – both those that aim at the renewal of urban forms and functions as well as those with the purpose of preserving heritage and of the city's memory – are involved in the different periods. In this sense, the projects and actions carried out by the agents that produce the space in Campinas – the municipal government, businessmen (from the industrial, real estate, cultural, popular trade, among others), residents (old and new), institutions and political groups for the defense of heritage – show conflicts over the uses, functions and material and symbolic appropriation of the city.
