Italian Silvio Fraquelli competed in the pole vault at the 1972 Olympic Games in München where he did not advance out of the qualifying round. A five-time national pole vault champion, Fraquelli won three titles consecutively from 1972-74 with the university club of CUS Torino, and two in 1975-76 with the military club of Fiamme Gialle.

From 1971-76, Fraquelli represented Italy 22 times in international competition but never recorded a national record due to the presence of Renato Dionisi. His twin brother, also a pole vaulter, was a member of the national team in 1972 but competed in only two international events.

Personal Best: PV – 5.30 (1975).
