Michele is a tall young man with tan skin, short, auburn hair, and dark, purple eyes.

Short Program

During his short program, Michele wears a black, armor-like costume with silver trim.

Free Skate

During his free skate, Michele wears a purple suit-like costume with an undone purple tie. It is decorated with sparkles.


Michele is very straight-laced and uptight, especially regarding women. He is very chivalrous and feels that it is necessary to protect his sister's honor by fending off suitors, which stems from how he would defend her from boys who bullied her when they were children. However, over time his protective feelings towards his sister have become possessive and overly dependent. He is very quick to anger, especially when he thinks a man is trying to get close to his sister.


Michele began figure skating with Sara Crispino at a young age.[1] At the Sochi Grand Prix Final in Russia, Michele placed 5th out of the six competitors.

Both he and Sara are from Naples, Italy.[2]



Michele is able to pull off the triple Lutz-triple loop, which is his sister's signature combination jump.


Sara Crispino

Young Michele and Sara.

Michele and Sara are fraternal twins. Sara usually refers to Michele as Mickey. Michele always protected his sister from bullies when they were younger. They are always at the rinkside during each other's programs to cheer the other on.

Michele is extremely overprotective of Sara and unhealthily codependent on her. While he was skating his program, his only thoughts were on Sara, and he believes himself to be the one who loves Sara the most. While Sara recognizes that this is a problem, he does not appear to.[3] After the free program in the Rostelecom Cup, Michele promises to loosen his dependency on Sara,[1] but goes back to being slightly more attached to her at the Grand Prix Final.

Emil Nekola

Even though Michele usually seems to be wary of Emil, afraid that Emil will go after his sister, he is on good terms with Emil. Emil is often spotted with the Crispino twins, asking them to cheer for him, or inviting them to go out for dinner or drinks together. Michele sits beside Emil in the audience during the Barcelona GPF short program.[4]
