Throughout six centuries, the Historic Center of Mexico City has concentrated sites and buildings linked to the political, religious, economic and cultural life of the country. It draws crowds when it comes to parties or social protests; it gives way to a floating population of more than a million people daily and synthesizes the great contrasts and inequalities that Mexico has experienced throughout its history. Its heyday as a central space declined in the middle of the 20th century, when its progressive deterioration began; however, it has once again become an object of desire and in dispute.
"Las Voces del Centro Histórico: La Lucha por el Espacio en la Ciudad de México" observes that struggle for space between individuals and groups with conflicting interests, but who have in common the appreciation of the Center.
