Angelo Damiano (born 30 September 1938) is a retired Italian track cyclist. Together with Sergio Bianchetto he won a gold medal in the tandem at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. They had easy semifinals, because their German competitors were disqualified, and won a close final against the Soviet team.[1]

After winning the national amateur sprint title in 1964, in 1965 Damiano turned professional and won a bronze medal in the sprint at the 1967 World Championships.[1][2]
