Report Rio de Janeiro 2016 Ceremonies. in Rio 2016 Ceremonies Discussions Posted May 22, 2016 my favella theory is getting stonger and stronger When I first saw this picture it was what I thought. But Meirelles has said that they're not preparing anything about the favelas. Than I thought it was buldings from copacabana/ipanema beach but they look too close. If it was supposed to represent something of the city it really looks like a favela. They are justing starting, so I believe that it is just some estructure.
