Mendoza at Home
Since the beginning of the pandemic and the declaration of quarantine, the authorities have insisted on the regulations to stay at home. As a result, the Mendoza en Casa platform has been made available to citizens. It is a portal where cultural proposals abound: music, plastic arts, film, theater and other branches. Some are classic and old content, others are new productions, exclusive to quarantine times. In any case, the offer abounds for those who usually attend museums, recitals and cultural spaces. At least they can satisfy their tastes.
