Elisa Di Francisca, born 13 December 1982 in Jesi, Italy is a foil fencer who won the gold medal in the Senior World Championships in 2010. Her path was promising in 2000 when she was second at the Italian Youth Championships. In 2003 she was back on the podium at the Italian Youth Championships overall. In 2004 she was fifth at the European Championships. The following year she won fifth place at the World Cup in Leipzig , followed by a seventh place in Turin 2006. Di Francisca won the silver medal in the foil team event at the 2006 World Fencing Championships after losing to Russia in the final.

She accomplished this with her teammates Margherita Granbassi, Giovanna Trillini and Valentina Vezzali. She also won the silver medal in the individual foil event at the 2006 European Seniors Fencing Championship. The 2008-09 season saw Di Francisca win second place at the end of June in Dallas at the World Cup behind Arianna Errigo and three times was one step from the podium at Leipzig, Marseille and Shanghai. At the Italian Championships in 2009 she placeded eleventh. She won the bronze medal at the 2010 European Fencing Championships in the individual foil event. The Beijing Games were unproductive, but there was time for looking forward to London in 2012.

Prior to fencing Elisa tried dancing - "I did dance for a couple of years" she says, "but honestly I got the feeling that it was too quiet - I needed more exercise. It is not my whole life, but I can not deny that the desire to arrive at the top was great..."
