    This article addresses the role played by culture, as a factor of economic regeneration and investment attraction, in the reconversion of post-industrial Barcelona. The author discusses the implications of this orientation of urban-cultural policies in what concerns the conception and organization of the city’s public space and the conditions of production of a local collective memory. The analysis of the museological project of the ruins discovered in the old Mercat del Born leads to a more complex exploration of the involvement of different types of actors in the processes of production of public space and collective memory. Giving special emphasis to the interests of the local community and to the presence of immigrant populations, the author proposes a more plural, negotiated, and dynamic conception of the production of the city’s public space.
