De Bairro Lusitano a Zona Tronca : a presença dos portugueses em Caxias do SUl (1911-1931)
Cleci Eulalia Favaro
AbstractThis study aims at rescuing the importance of the presence of a Portuguese-origin community from within the historical process of Caxias do Sul. Mainly professional coopers and their relatives formed the community. These workers came to Caxias do Sul in the early years of the 20 * Century attracted by the economical growth of the wine and viticulture sector. Because of their skills, professional experience and class organization, they took the lead over the local workers. Together with the creation of capital-protection laws, the progressive introduction of technology in production ultimately determined the breaking up of the traditional group of coopers and their means of social expression, the Lusitana district.
