29 June-4 Sept. This exhibition, presented in parallel with the Vatican's Holy Jubilee Year of Mercy, comprises Sebastiana Papa's photographs of women's monastic communities of various creeds.
The images were the result of ten year's research in Italy and around the world, and feature in her book Le Repubbliche delle Donne. Monachesimo femminile nel mondo, 1967-1999.
The exhibition includes images of daily life in convents belonging to Catholic orders across Italy, as well as communities including Orthodox communities in Greece and Russia, Copts in Egypt, as well as Tibetan monasteries in India, Buddhists in Burma, and Taoists in China.
