Crisanti studied Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He began his film career as assistant set designer to Mario Garbuglia by working on the set of The Great War (1959) with Mario Monicelli. Then he worked with other set designers. He debuted in Maciste in Hell (1962) by Riccardo Freda, working both in cinema and theatre.

The crucial meeting to his career came in 1970 with Francesco Rosi. He worked on Cinema Paradiso (1988) and A Pure Formality (1994) by Giuseppe Tornatore, which won a David di Donatello Award. Sicily is one of his favourite places, and he recalled the pomp of seventeenth century Bourbon period for the set of The Council of Egypt (2002) by Emidio Greco. Crisanti worked on Michelangelo Antonioni's Identification of a Woman (1982), Franzo Zeffirelli's Young Toscanini (1988), Gianni Amelio's The Stolen Children (1992), and Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalghia (1983).

Crisanti taught art at Rome's Experimental Cinematography Centre from 1995 until his death and was president of A.S.C., Set and Costume Designers Association.
