Le Repubbliche delle donne is a dense, careful and somehow extraordinary photographic book. Always attentive to relationships between women, Sebastiana Papa has traveled extensively, visiting and living in monasteries all over the world. Knowing, studying, researching and only then photographing, in search of a narrative that unravels like a thread.

Daily life and meditation, prayer and research, gestures and silence, solitude and friendship. The photos of her with strength and simplicity have the ability to capture the soul and tell in images the stories of the women who are the protagonists.
