A worker walks on the roof of the Museum of Civilizations from Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM), designed by Italian architect Rudy Ricciotti, on January 11, 2013 in Marseille. 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, ferries and Sainte-Marie Majeure cathedral also known as 'La Major'. AFP PHOTO / BORIS HORVAT (Photo credit should read BORIS HORVAT/AFP/Getty Images)
