The seminar seeks to contribute to the historical truth, propose a more complete explanation of the architectural phenomenon, but above all it tries to bring to the forefront of the discussion a series of actions that did not receive critical judgment from their peers at the time. nor have they occupied a clear or clear position in historiography, because those who built the official narrative of what happened tended to ignore them, due to malicious intent or carelessness.
