Summary: This dissertation provides an understanding of how the production of privileged
locations, highlights socio-spatial segregation and affirms the power of the State, as a
reproducer of the interests of elites and an intensifier of the inequalities expressed in
the urban space. It evaluates the location of investments made by the government
between the years 2007 and 2019, in the municipality of Viana (ES) - the year in which
the Growth Acceleration Plan (PAC) came into effect, being it a federal policy for
investments in infrastructure works - and the relationship with socio-spatial distribution
within the municipality's urban perimeter. It analyses the historical process of land
parceling and land occupation and also the urban conformation of the municipality. It
aims to demonstrate the conflicting performance of the public authorities in the process
of intra-urban structuring, a factor that produces and highlights inequalities. For this, it
seeks a relationship between the location of public investments, existing equipment
and the distribution of social layers in the urban space, through empirical research,
covering a period of time of 12 years. It makes the mapping and analysis of the most
relevant public investments - at the municipal, state and federal scales - that were
destined to the road system, paving of roads, squares, public buildings, health
establishments and other equipment, carried out within the proposed period. The
alignment of information about public investments, with their mapping, the crossing
and overlapping of geographical information about the distribution of social layers in
the territory, allows us to observe how the political forces of the upper classes influence
the State's decision-making. Such decisions are intentional and do not aim to meet
social demands in search of equity or mitigation of social inequalities, but have the
main objective of promoting or subsidizing the profits of the elites who appropriate the
localization factor in order to boost capital gains, increasing the evidence of differences
in the cities
