Monica Federico is a chemical engineer, and works since 25 years in semiconductor industry; she has worked also as a ceramist and painter in her own atelier for three years. She writes poems, haiku and short stories. In the arts she likes synthesis and concept, for her haiku is an instantaneous emotion, a flash of light. She collaborated to the editing and publication of poetry anthologies and short stories anthologies. She writes haiku in Italian, English, French and German. Several of her haiku have been translated into Japanese.
