Shelter-in-Plate is an initiative of the group Pugliesi in California to bring some joy and comfort during quarantine. Playing with that name, we created different online classes, each one taught by an expert of the topic. The classes are free, family-friendly, and aim to bring people together during a time in which it is hard to share experiences safely. These virtual events are a way to learn new skills, “meet” new people in a safe space and spend some time together while respecting social distancing. All other classes are listed on our Pugliesi in California Facebook page.
The community: Pugliesi in California is a vibrant, inclusive and beautiful community of people from Puglia, a region in the South of Italy, who now live in California. We organize many different events every year that include cultural, artistic, and traditional aspects of our region including music, food, and art. These events aim to make the members of the group feel at home and close to their cultural background while spreading and sharing our culture with people from all over the world.
