Too bad every time she seems pleasantly surprised by Paolo, he ruins everything a minute later, just for being...Paolo.

She is the beautiful yet extremely dim-witted new secretary of the company.

* AnnoyingLaugh: Her laugh is one of the worst examples of MostAnnoyingSound. And her crying is just as annoying (see "Eroe nell'ombra").
* BrainlessBeauty: A textbook example. In fact her character was created just to be this trope. She's a MsFanservice (played by model Desy Luccini) and the "brainless" part is exaggerated UpToEleven.
* CuteButCacophonic: ''Especially when she laughs''.
* TheDitz: She actually makes '''Paolo''' look like a genius. In one episode she actually falls for Paolo because of how "intellectual" he is (we are talking about Paolo, an ignorant illiterate moron of epic proportions) and then changing her mind because Paolo is too "smart" for her.
* DitzySecretary: Like Anna in the first two seasons, but even more of an airhead.
* DumbIsGood: She's probably the only character who never has {{Jerkass}} moments. Since, this is ''Camera Cafè'', that's saying a lot.
* HiddenDepths: Despite her general incompetence she has a hidden "talent": being always able to know what time is it, without looking at the watch.
* MsFanservice: One of the most obvious examples.
* NaiveNewcomer: A new secretary introduced in season 5 who is oblivious about pretty much everything.

* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan:
** Paolo is seemingly the Manly Man (a sleazy womanizer and loves cars and drinking) to Luca's Sensitive Guy (more of an intellectual loner who loves cinema and literature, or so he claims). Ultimately subverted since [[{{Jerkass}} Luca]] is anything but sensitive.
** Both of them are the Manly Men to Silvano's Sensitive Guy. Especially Paolo in contrast to Silvano in the episodes where they interact without Luca.
