    Abstract

    The Brazilian state after the country's independence had to be built up. Its great internal distances favoured the rise of regionalist feelings. The national state's power centrality would only become possible through the development of communications with the regions. The Companhia Brasileira de Paquetes a Vapor (Brazilian Steam Navigation Company), by linking the capitals of all maritime provinces, had taken responsibility for the distribution of mail, and thus transformed itself in one of the fundamental means for implementing the political decisions of the monarchy, by warranting its territoriality and effective capacity to penetrate the civil society. But, through its privileges and subventions, this company was assimilated by the state, failing to modernize itself. At the end of its monopolistic concession, it was unable to face foreign competition and went bankrupt.
