A partial view taken on January 11, 2013 shows the new Museum of Civilizations from Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM-LEFT) designed by Italian architect Rudy Ricciotti, and the new 'Centre Regional de la Mediterranee' (Mediterranean Regional Centre-RIGHT) designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri. Long plagued by a reputation for gang crime and lawlessness, France's port city of Marseille is hoping its year as the 2013 European Capital of Culture will finally give its image a makeover. The gritty Mediterranean city will kick off the festivities on January 12, 2013 with a downtown parade, fireworks and the opening of a slew of exhibitions. At background, the cathedral of Sainte-Marie-majeure also known as La Major. AFP PHOTO / BORIS HORVAT (Photo credit should read BORIS HORVAT/AFP/Getty Images)
