In this text we want to reflect on the relationship between event and structure during the XXth century, emphasizing the in French historiography. Considering that, since 1970s, the event is a newly legitimated as a historical object; we try to overcome the dichotomy between event and structure, for example, in the work of Fernand Braudel, based on the innovative thought of Paul Ricouer and Reinhart Koselleck. We propose a concept of event that could be useful for future historic analysis, in line with Michel de Certeau and Marschal Salhins reflections.
