Carnaval im Rio 2017

​​

Sapucaí

The Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí is a purpose-built parade area built for the Rio Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The venue is also known as Passarela Professor Darcy Ribeiro or simply the Sambódromo in Portuguese or Sambadrome in English. It is located in the downtown area of Cidade Nova in Rio de Janeiro, and is the place where samba schools parade competitively each year during the Rio Carnival. The parades attract many thousands of Brazilians and foreign tourists each year, and the structure is also used as a multi-purpose performance venue. The structures of the Sambadrome were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012), and represent his first major work after the end of the Brazilian dictatorship of 1964-1985.


Carnaval in Rio

The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro (Portuguese: Carnaval) is a festival held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people per day on the streets. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723.


The typical Rio carnival parade is filled with revelers, floats, and adornments from numerous samba schools which are located in Rio (more than 200 approximately, divided into 5 leagues/ divisions). A samba school is composed of a collaboration of local neighbours that want to attend carnival together, with some kind of regional, geographical common background.

There is a special order that every school has to follow with their parade entries. Each school begins with the “comissão de frente” (“Front Commission” in English), that is the group of people from the school that appear first. Made of ten to fifteen people, the “comissão de frente” introduces the school and sets the mood and style of their presentation. These people have choreographed dances in fancy costumes that usually tell a short story. 


Following the “comissão de frente” is the first float of the samba school, called “abre-alas” (“Opening Wing” in English). These are followed by the Mestre-sala and Porta-Bandeira (Master of Ceremonies and Flag Bearer), with one to 4 pairs, one active and 3 reserve, to lead the dancers, which include the old guard veterans and the “ala das baianas”, with the bateria at the rear and sometimes a brass section and guitars.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping megacenters such as Abu Dhabi and Marina malls. Beneath white-marble domes, the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque features an immense Persian carpet, crystal chandeliers and capacity for 41,000 worshipers.

Abu Dhabi is full of archeological evidence that points to civilizations, such as the Umm an-Nar Culture, having been located there from the third millennium BCE. Settlements were also found farther outside the modern city of Abu Dhabi but closer to the modern city of Al Ain. 
Abu Dhabi has a diverse and multicultural society.

Sprawling over half a million square meters, the elegantly crafted Etihad Towers is designed by Australian architects DBI Design.

#MAKEAPROMISE  Louis Vuitton partners with UNICEF

I AM here tonight with #makeapromise  UNICEF & LVMH Let’s Help Children around the World. 

Louis Vuitton Foundation 

Louis Vuitton and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) signed a partnership on January 11th to support the most vulnerable children around the world. Louis Vuitton has launched a major campaign to raise funds for UNICEF.


Adriana Sassoon

Louis Vuitton’s partnership with UNICEF will help support the organization’s efforts to protect children exposed to natural disasters and conflicts, providing health care, nutrition and education. “UNICEF is a strong and reliable leader in humanitarian action. Together, we can make a real difference to children in the most vulnerable situations,” said Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton.

To raise funds, Louis Vuitton has designed a special product, the Silver Lockit, inspired by the unpickable tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect the contents of trunks. The Silver Locket is available in both pendant and bracelet models. For each sale, Louis Vuitton will donate $200 to UNICEF.

Adriana Sassoon 
Louis Vuitton has also created a digital campaign to raise awareness and encourage as many people as possible to support UNICEF’s actions. This commitment is symbolized by a “pinky promise”, a popular way among children to signify that a promise has been sealed by entwining their little fingers. People are invited to share their pledge on social networks via the hashtag #MAKEAPROMISE.


My favorite piece was of course The Campana brothers Milan 2015: a swinging cocoon chair by the Campana brothers and seats made from leather petals by Raw Edges are among the contributions to a collection of portable furnishings for French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

The campaign went live on January 12 in Los Angeles at the sixth UNICEF Ball. Numerous Louis Vuitton friends were on hand to support the initiative. They joined Nicolas Ghesquière and Léa Seydoux, the Maison’s new muse, who interlocked their pinkies to make a promise.

Through this ambitious global partnership Louis Vuitton encourages everyone to get involved and support UNICEF by making a direct donation or by purchasing the Silver Lockit, and to show and share their commitment on social networks with #MAKEAPROMISE.

Antibes was founded as a 5th-century BC Greek colony settled by Phocaeans from Massilia,[1] called Ἀντίπολις, Antípolis which literally means the “city across” as the city was situated across the sea from “Νίκαια”, the main Greek city at that time. Due to its naturally protected port, the town of Antibes has long been an important trading centre.
Rome gradually increased its hold over the Mediterranean coast and in 43 BC, Antipolis was officially incorporated in the propraetorial (senatorial from 27 BC) province of Gallia Narbonensis in which it remained for the next 500 years. Antipolis grew into the largest town in the region and a main entry point into Gaul. Roman artifacts such as aqueducts, fortified walls and amphoræ can still be seen today.
After the Western Roman Empire disintegrated in 476 AD various barbarian tribes seized Antibes. This resulted in destruction and a long period of instability. In the 10th century, Antibes found a protector in Seigneur Rodoart, who built extensive fortified walls around the town and a castle in which to live. For the next 200 years, the town experienced a period of renewal.
Prosperity was short-lived, as the whole region fell into disarray for several centuries. The inhabitants of Antibes stayed behind their strong city walls as a succession of wars and epidemics ravaged the countryside. By the end of the 15th century, the region was under the protection and control of King Louis XI of France. Relative stability returned, but the small port of Antibes fell into obscurity.
From around the middle of the 19th century the Antibes area regained its popularity, as wealthy people from around Europe discovered its natural beauty and built luxurious homes here.
In 1926, the old Château Grimaldi in Antibes was bought by the local municipality and later restored for use as a museum. Pablo Picasso came to the town in 1946, having visited his friend and fellow painter Gerald Murphy and his wife Sara there in 1923, and was invited to stay in the castle. During his six-month stay Picasso painted and drew as well as crafting ceramics and tapestries. When he departed Picasso left a number of his works to the municipality. The castle has since become the Picasso Museum.
