This study aims to provide new elements of reflection on the complex relationship between Fascist corporatism and the category of «autoritarismo instrumental» in the thought of Brazilian sociologist and jurist Francisco José de Oliveira Vianna. The essay sheds new light on how Oliveira Vianna re-elaborated the fascist corporatist model in the 1930s, during the «Vargas era», in order to regulate the economic and social modernization of Brazil. It also proposes a different point of view for the study of fascist corporatism, by placing it within the process of «shared circulation» of ideas at the global level between the two world wars. The «Revolution» of 1930 and the Estado Novo of Vargas accomplished some of the main tenets of Oliveira Vianna's «autoritarismo instrumental».
