A week ago I get a WhatsApp, a video from the Republic newspaper: “Pub and Playroom: a meeting point is born in Palermo for mothers.”
I went to take a look on Wednesday afternoon with my 2 year old daughter. I went in for a coffee and left after two hours. Of course this could not happen in an actual pub. Because this place is not “a Pub and a Playroom”, but it’s a wonderful project of three Moms!
The place is hospitable, well furnished and clean. It is located inside a small courtyard of a building (therefore a “safe” outdoor space – with tables and sofas) and consists of a main room – cafeteria / refreshment area, reading area, small play area, bathroom with changing table and children’s sink, laboratory / activity room – and a covered outdoor room used as a play area (where they have a market, kitchen, train and many other games).
I attended a Yoga class for children (in the laboratory room area where different activities are carried out – from yoga to painting – and you can consult the activity calendar on the Facebook page the Giuggiole), we ate some genuine food (it is possible to have a only a snack but also lunch and dinner), I had the pleasure of meeting the owners, I made friends with other mothers and my daughter with other children, and I was able to work on the blog. This initiative works very well!
Info … being an ARCI Club it is necessary to make an annual membership card which costs 5 euros. The Giuggiole is located in Via S.
