Giannuzzi was born in to a family of Italian immigrants in Argentina. He chose journalism as a career and his observational gifts are obvious, poems often focusing on individual objects or people. Why do we harbor such crap and ugliness? But what if we compelled it to be ejected, might we be left even more empty-handed? But the truce is indeed short-lived as the poem ends with a bomb blast, police arriving, all delivered in a tone suggestive of the commonplace. There are rare moments of tenderness.

He approaches the topic as he approaches all his subject matter, with a lugubrious humour, with pathos, and with painful accuracy.
