A view taken on January 12, 2013 shows in the foreground the new Museum of Civilizations from Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM) (L), designed by Italian architect Rudy Ricciotti, and Fort Saint Jean (R), and in the background the cathedral of Sainte-Marie-Majeure (aka La Major) (L) in Marseille, southern France. 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.
