The social sciences on social inequality in Brazil emphasize the role that residential places play in the production and/or reproduction of asymmetries of social positioning therein, with the acceleration of economic globalization as of the 1990s. My purpose here is to address what may be said about social disparities in urban space in Brazil by contemplating public places so absolutely receptive to social diversity as the squares of downtown São Paulo during workday afternoons.

By tackling ethnographic data about the everyday patterns of bodily use of five of these public places in the city's historical core between March 2013 and August 2014 from a peculiar dialectical and phenomenological perspective, a Lefebvrean and Goffmanian one, peculiarly long-standing body-behavioural and moral inequalities come to the fore.
