Setting the stage in Rio for World Youth Day 2013... literally

It?s not just about logistics. Organizers are also looking for ; an artistic touch. Abel Gomes, who designed the main stage at Copacabana, said its layout was inspired by the picturesque mountain skyline in Rio. Another imposing stage, at Campus Fidei, was inspired by the shape of ancient Gothic cathedrals. Its main features are two towers at the ends of the altar which resemble two hands held in prayer. Between them, a golden coated cross, that?s over 100 feet high. ;Organizers hope the projects will be completed as soon as possible, to welcome the hundreds of pilgrims who are already making their way to Rio.BBRR-NR-PRup:SCar
