CITIES - The Brazilian Baroque Masterpieces
Gold was first
found in Minas Gerais in 1689 and soon after the gold rush
began, lasting for more than a hundred years. Much of the
gold was sent to Portugal by the colonizers, but a large amount
was spent on building magnificent Baroque churches, lavishly
decorated by the famous sculptor "Aleijadinho" and by many
other artists of that time.
masterpiece of Baroque colonial architecture in Brazil, Ouro
Preto has been declared by UNESCO a cultural monument for
all mankind. Its mid-18th century appearance has been faithfully
maintained to his day - narrow stone-paved streets winding

Rio is the greatest show in the world.
Its highlight is the "Samba Schools" Parade, a festival of
light, color, music, dances and samba rhythm.
The "Samba Schools" are neighborhood groups from Rio's slums
and working-class suburbs. Each one is formed by as many as
5,000 people in average. The largest of them, in number of
14, perform their show on Sunday and Monday, seven of them
Parade is a kind of open air opera-theater. Each "school"
chooses a new theme and writes up a new song every year, a
musical interpretation of what is shown in the floats, costumes
and choreography. The dancers are divided into sections called
"alas" that interpret the various parts of the theme.
Dancers, singers and drum players dressed in the most beautiful
and elaborate costumes defend their "School" with a passion
just comparable to the passion of Brazilians for their football
teams. Because the parade is a contest, they want their "team"
to win not just because of the cash prizes awarded by the
jury, that will help to support next year's parade , but mostly
for the pride of being considered the best. and for the good
contracts for presentation of their Art all over the world.
Carnival Parade is the opportunity for thousands of poor people
to feel like queens and kings for one night. They find it
worth to work all year long to enjoy those moments of glory.
The parade flows before your eyes like a river: thousands
of people performing a play called Brazil - its legends, its
folklore, its history, its everyday life themes.
They are performing for you. If you were not there to see,
the show would not make sense.
