* On ''Series/TheAmazingRace,'' a Fast-Forward task involved a routine with such a troupe. The green pass would appear in the performance some time during the routine, upon which it could be claimed.

** '''The Doctor''' (''il Dottore'', ''Graziano''): No, ([[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy probably]]) not [[Series/DoctorWho that Doctor.]] Often an AbsentMindedProfessor type; often the father of one of the ''innamorati''. If he's the father of the ''innamorata'', then he will rarely have much plot relevance, and will just sort of hang around and be funny. A parody of the Bolognese laureate intellectual (Bologna has one of the world's oldest universities). Mostly portrayed as a doctor in law, usually intersperses his lines with [[CanisLatinicus dog Latin]] and mangled renditions of commonplace Latin sayings for comical effect. Sometimes a KnowNothingKnowItAll.

* '''[[OfficialCouple The Lovers]]''' (''innamorati'')

to:

* '''[[OfficialCouple The Lovers]]''' (''innamorati'')(''innamorati'') Their romance tends to drive the plot whether or not they're the main characters. Frequently [[UpperClassTwit rather airheaded]] and reliant on their [[HypercompetentSidekick much smarter servants]].

* ''MoulinRouge'' is an example with Christian and Satine as the innamorati, The Duke and, to a lesser extent, Zidler, as the Old People trying to keep them apart, and Toulouse and the Bohemians as the Servants trying to keep them together. The difference is that The Lovers are the ones clearly driving the plot while the Servants are more sidelined. [[spoiler: It also does not have a happy ending.]]

** '''[[MilesGloriosus The Captain]]''' (''il Capitano''): Blowhard, [[CasanovaWannabe thinks he's God's gift to women]], will turn out to have FeetOfClay. Often serves as the RomanticFalseLead. If the ''innamorato''[='=]s biggest rival for the ''innamorata''[='=]s hand isn't his own father, it's this guy. Typically a disliked foreigner, often from Spain (as Spain, the superpower of the time, held political sway over Italy). Usually has an OverlyLongName (very common in Spanish nobility). A variant is Scaramuccia.

** Wodehouse's other most notably series, the ''Literature/BlandingsCastle'' stories, also apply ''zanni'' tropes to the aristocracy, with the doddering Clarence Threepwood, Earl of Emsworth, as a kindly ''Dottore'' figure, his domineering sister Lady Clarence Keeble as a ''Signora'', their disreputable brother Galahad as an elderly ''Arlecchino'', and Clarence's nemesis and neighbour Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe as a sort of ''Brighella'' figure, and there are always a pair of ''innamorati'' on hand, one of whom will generally be a grandchild or distant in-law of Clarence. This time, however, the servants are a bit more in on the act, with the eternally put-upon butler Beach as a toned-down, non-romantic ''Pierrot'', and the truculent gardener Angus [=MacAllister=] as ''Pulcinella'' (without the violence or threats thereof), and the opportunistic pig-keeper George Cyril Wellbeloved as a more conventional Brighella.
