Michele Campagnaro (Italian pronunciation: [mi'k?:le kampa?'?a:ro]; born 13 March 1993) is an Italian rugby union player who plays as a centre. He currently plays for Harlequins in the English Premiership and Italy national rugby union team.
Campagnaro took a while to find his feet in the Chiefs' first team, scoring his first try for the club against the Cardiff Blues in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. He had a run of games in the number 13 jersey during January 2017 that saw him score six tries in four matches, including a hat-trick against Wasps. He was a replacement as Exeter Chiefs defeated Wasps to be crowned champions of the 2016-17 English Premiership.
Following his departure from Exeter, he signed for Wasps on a deal until the end of the 2018-19 season. On 19 March 2019, Campagnaro has signed for Harlequins from the 2019-20 season, after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Campagnaro has caps for Italy including four appearances in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and two in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. He made his international debut vs Fiji on 23 November 2013. He has captained Italy on one occasion, in a test match played in Chicago against Ireland during the 2018 Autumn test series; on the occasion, Campagnaro also scored the lone try of Italy, in a 54-7 defeat. He has scored nine tries for Italy including two in the Six Nations match between Wales and Italy in 2014 which Wales won 23-15 despite Campagnaro scoring twice. Campagnaro won many plaudits for his Man of the match performance.
He was injured for much of the 2015 Six Nations campaign.
In the 2017 Six Nations, Campagnaro came off the bench in the first two games against Wales and Ireland. He started Italy's third test of the championship against England at Twickenham. In the 59th minute of this game, Campagnaro scored a magnificent solo try which saw him evade challenges from both George Ford and Mike Brown.
