      Abstract

      Este artigo tem por objetivo discutir a turistificação urbana, nas suas relações com o urbanismo neoliberal e a reestruturação urbana no capitalismo globalizado, procurando mais particularmente averiguar o papel que a iniciativa JESSICA, enquanto instrumento de política neoliberal para a regeneração urbana, teve na turistificação da cidade de Lisboa. O artigo baseia-se numa metodologia de investigação micro-geográfica, procedendo a um estudo de caso detalhado, com a reconstituição da biografia de um edifício que foi recentemente convertido para hotel de luxo com financiamento JESSICA. O estudo mostra que, nessa mudança funcional, ocorreu uma elitização do local, e que a turistificação veio ocupar o vazio deixado após um longo período de desinvestimento e abandono gradual do edifício. O estudo conclui ainda que a turistificação deve ser vista como uma consequência e um reflexo da globalização na transformação da cidade, e que o fundo JESSICA não encaminhou mas antes se limitou a coadjuvar uma intenção de investimento que já estava latente

      On a cherché ici à comprendre le phénomène de «touristification» urbaine, dans le cadre de l’urbanisation néolibérale et de la restructuration urbaine liée au capitalisme mondialisé. On a cherché en particulier quel fut le rôle de l’initiative JESSICA, cet instrument de la politique néolibérale pour la rénovation urbaine, dans la «touristification» de la ville de Lisbonne. La méthode de recherche a été micro-géographique, par la réalisation d’une étude de cas détaillée, la reconstitution «biographique» d’un immeuble récemment converti en hôtel de luxe grâce au financement JESSICA. Ce changement fonctionnel a provoqué l’ «élitisation» d’un lieu qui était demeuré vide après une longue période de désinvestissement et d’abandon progressif de l’édifice. On montre aussi que la «touristification» est une conséquence directe de la mondialisation sur la transformation de la ville, le fonds JESSICA ayant seulement appuyé une intention d’investissement qui était déjà latente

      Translated abstract

      This paper aims to discuss the process of urban touristification, and its relationship with neoliberal urbanism and urban restructuring in the era of global capitalism. In particular, the paper examines the role played by the Jessica initiative, as an instrument of neoliberal policy for the urban regeneration, in the touristification of the Lisbon city. This paper is based on a micro-geographical investigation, in which a detailed case study was conducted to reconstitute the biography of a building that has recently been converted into a luxury hotel using Jessica financing. The study shows that under this functional change there was an elitization of the locale and that touristification filled the void left after a long period of disinvestment and a gradual abandonment of the building. The study concludes that touristification should be seen as a consequence and a reflection of globalizing processes underlying the transformation of the city. The Jessica Fund did not guide but merely assist the investment intention that was already latent
