Rio’s New 7 Wonder of the World started the restoration process in an interdisciplinary work ahead of its 90th anniversary in October 2021. 


According to the architect in charge, Cristina Ventura, the restoration work started with a complete x-ray study of the statue in order to identify areas in most need of repair. Ventura told the press that being there is important since “it is a very strong symbol. Christ the Redeemer embraces the Brazilian population so it is a responsibility, a great privilege, to be there.”
