Learn about Brazil's Olympic future

It's only 1,453 days to go until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and last night the baton was firmly passed to the South American city, with a memorable flourish. If you're keen to understand what Brazil and Rio have to offer without leaving London, then you're in luck as Somerset House hosts Casa Brazil until 8th September, with a showcase of Brazilian art and culture.

Your author popped into the Embankment Galleries yesterday and, apart from a big clock and a shop already selling Rio Olympic tat, was impressed by exhibitions on Brazilian art and design, and also on the Olympic plans for the city, where you can learn about the work that has already taken place to prepare for the Games.

  1. It was a great event! I had a great desire that Brazil will get a gold medal but unfortunately they lost to Mexico in the finals. Overall, the match was controlled by Mexicans but i don't think a single should be held responsible for defeat.

  2. They missed the chance to be the defender of the title at home, but honeslty Mexico deserved to win and I am sure that with that squad in few years they can even win the World Cup.
