Angela Giordano is above all an artist - she is painting fabrics, mirrors, glass, stones and various materials for over 35 years. For nearly a decade he has written traditional poems and Japanese metrics. The haiku has completely conquered her for its synthesis and immediacy of images and emotions aroused in only 17 syllables. She believes that poetry is a vehicle and a means to bring people together and knows no boundaries.
