Michele Campagnaro is a promising young Italian, already seen with the Italian Under 20's and the Seven's jersey. Campagnaro comes from the Rugby Mirano Academy before playing for Treviso for two years. In 2015 his impressive performances in Italy led to him signing for Exeter for the 2015 season.

In 2013 the pacy centre was included in the Italian national set up for the first time for the 6 Nations, and has been in the side ever since. 2015 saw him make an appearance at the Rugby World Cup for the first time.

He had a run of games in the 13 jersey for Exeter Chiefs during January 2017 which led to 6 tries in 4 matches including a hat trick against Wasps Rugby.

In mid January 2017, he was named in the Italy squad for the Six Nations tournament, the competition that he has played 10 games and scored 10 points.

In February 2017, Campagnaro put to pen to paper on a new deal with Exeter that will see him remain at the club for at least the next two years.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Campagnaro has had 20 European appearances scoring 4 tries and 20 points.

In October 2018, Exeter Chiefs announced that Campagnaro would leave the club at the end of the month and become a free agent.

In November 2018, the Italian star was picked up by Wasps on a one-season deal.

Ahead of the 2019 Six Nations, Campagnaro has had 14 previous 6 Nations appearances, scoring 20 points.
