Carnival backstage

Portrayed here is the "barrac√£o do Salgueiro", a huge warehouse where it is carried on the whole creative process of design and floats building.

It's a process that lasts since August of the previous year, when the sambas are chosen and then the theme and costumes are designed.
Actual costumes will be prepared in the favela community. And everything with be ready on time, but on the very last minute, of course!
