Itamaraty Palace
Brazil

Palace dos Arcos was the first name given to the building due to the arches of the facade. However the tradition of Itamaraty name was stronger and the Palace followed by calling sure Itamaraty Palace. In its interior, it features panels of artists like Athos Bulcão, Rubem Valentim, Sérgio Camargo, Maria Martins and fresco of Alfredo Volpi. The landscaping is internal and external of Roberto Burle Marx. In front of the Itamaraty Palace, on the reflecting pool is the Meteor sculpture, designed by Bruno Giorgi. The foundation stone of the Palace was released on September 12, 1960, however this only was effectively completed and inaugurated in 1970, due to technical difficulties to meet the project's innovations

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
