In this work we obtain a reduction of the vectorial Ribaucour transformation that preserves the class of submanifolds with constant sectional curvature of space forms. As a consequence, a process is derived to generate a new family of such submanifolds starting from a given one. We prove a decomposition theorem for this transformation, from which the classical permutability theorem for the Ribaucour transformation of submanifolds with constant sectional curvature follows. Given k scalar Ribaucour transforms of a submanifold with constant sectional curvature, we prove the existence of a Bianchi k-cube all of whose vertices are submanifolds with the same constant sectional curvature, each of which is given by means of explicit algebraic formulas. A further reduction of the transformation is shown to preserve the class of Lagrangian submanifolds of dimension n and constant sectional curvature c of complex space forms of complex dimension n and constant holomorphic sectional curvature 4c. In particular, explicit parametrizations in terms of elementary functions of examples with arbitrary dimension and curvature are provided. A decomposition theorem and a version of the Bianchi cube for this transformation are also obtained.
