Career

Early career

Luca Lanotte started skating at the age of seven and switched from singles to ice dance when he was ten.[2] He skated with Adriana Jovino, Camilla Spelta,[3] and Camilla Pistorello,[4] placing ninth at Junior Worlds with Pistorello.[2]

Partnership with Cappellini

2005–2010

Lanotte was partnered with Anna Cappellini in May 2005 by the Italian skating federation.[5][6] Following a strong season together on the junior circuit, Cappellini/Lanotte made their senior debut in 2006–07. They finished 8th at their first Europeans. Before their next event, Worlds, Cappellini suffered a torn labrum in her left shoulder.[2] In the free dance at Worlds, they fell during a lift and finished 13th.[2]

In 2007–08, Cappellini/Lanotte won their first Grand Prix medal, a silver at Skate Canada, moved up to seventh at Europeans, and finished in the top ten at Worlds.

In 2008–09, Cappellini/Lanotte did not medal in either of their Grand Prix appearances, but moved up to 5th at Europeans and were again tenth at Worlds. In the off-season, they decided to change coaches, and moved to Lyon, France to train with Muriel Boucher-Zazoui and Romain Haguenauer.

Cappellini/Lanotte had a strong start in 2009–10, winning silver medals at the Cup of Russia and Skate America and qualifying for their first Grand Prix Final, where they finished fifth. They then placed sixth at the European Championships, and finished outside the top ten at their first Olympics. They then finished 11th at the 2010 World Championships; in the free dance, the two collided during the twizzle sequence, causing Cappellini to fall, and received low levels on several elements.[7]

2010–present

Cappellini/Lanotte began the 2010–11 season at the Nebelhorn Trophy. They were first in the short dance and fourth in the free dance, finishing in second place overall.[8] They then placed fifth at the 2010 NHK Trophy, after which they decided to leave coach Muriel Zazoui and move back to Milan to train with Paola Mezzadri.[9] They withdrew from 2010 Skate America in order to prepare a new free dance. Cappelini/Lanotte later missed Italian nationals and the European Championships because Lanotte had a knee injury. In 2011, they began splitting their time between Milan and Nikolai Morozov in Novogorsk, Russia. They returned to competition at the Mont Blanc Trophy, which they won. They finished 8th at the 2011 World Championships.

Cappellini/Lanotte won bronze medals at 2011 Skate Canada International and the 2011 Trophee Eric Bompard. After winning their first national title, they came in sixth at the 2012 World Championships. In June 2012, Cappellini/Lanotte began training with Igor Shpilband in Novi, Michigan.[10][11] Paola Mezzadri in Milan remained their primary coach, while Novi became their second training base.[10][12] Cappellini sprained her left shoulder during the summer.[13] In July, they decided to change their planned free dance.[14]

Cappellini/Lanotte began the 2012–13 season with silver at the 2012 Finlandia Trophy.[13] Winning silver at both of their Grand Prix events, the 2012 Skate Canada and the 2012 Trophée Eric Bompard, they qualified for their second Grand Prix Final,[15] where they came in fourth. Cappellini/Lanotte won their first European medal, bronze, at the 2013 European Championships. They then placed fourth at the 2013 World Championships in London, Ontario.

In the 2013–14 season, Cappellini/Lanotte were awarded another pair of silver medals on the Grand Prix series. They placed sixth at the Grand Prix Final before winning gold at the 2014 European Championships in Budapest. The duo finished sixth at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Cappellini/Lanotte ended their season at the 2014 World Championships in Saitama, Japan. Ranked first in the short dance and fourth in the free dance, they ended the competition in first overall, 0.02 of a point ahead of Canada's Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje and 0.06 ahead of France's Nathalie Pechalat / Fabian Bourzat. They became the second Italian ice dancers to win the World title.

In July 2014, Cappellini/Lanotte began working with Marina Zueva in Canton, Michigan, in addition to Mezzadri in Milan.[16] For the 2014-15 Grand Prix season, they were assigned to Cup of China and Trophée Éric Bompard.[17] They withdrew from Trophée Bompard to make changes to their programs.[18][19] The team later took silver at the 2015 European Figure Skating Championships and capped off the season with a fourth place finish at the 2015 World Figure Skating Championships.

Personal life

Luca Lanotte's sister, Ada, competed in synchronized skating.[20] He is a member of the Polizia Penitenziaria's sports group, the Fiamme Azzurre.[12]
