Portrayed By

Ruggero Pasquarelli
Todd Stone (English dub)

Federico is a former Italian YouMix star and a student at the Studio. He is generally a nice and helpful person, but he can sometimes be slightly arrogant and stubborn. He cares a lot about his fans, and he would do anything to make them happy.

Federico is portrayed by Ruggero Pasquarelli.


Overall, Federico is a very friendly and pleasant person. When he first came to Buenos Aires, he seemed to be a little mean, since he threatened to tell Herman the truth about Violetta attending the Studio. But when he hears Violetta sing, he realises how talented she is and he promises not to say anything to Herman. From then on, he is shown to be very hard-working, easy-going and loyal. He soon makes friends with almost everyone in the Studio, with the exception of Ludmila, and Gregorio, who dislikes him a lot. When he returns to Buenos Aires in the second season, he is now a very famous singer, thanks to YouMix and the Talents 21 show. He has become a little conceited because of this, but he's a very thoughtful and kind guy.

Character History

Season 1

Part 2

When Federico first appeared on the series, he seemed to be a little mean, because he wanted to tell Herman the truth about Violetta and the Studio. But after Ramallo, Olga, Angie and Leon talked to him, he became a lot more friendly, especially to Violetta. He had a crush on Violetta when he first met her, but she didn't feel the same for him, so they agreed to be just friends. He was one of the eight contestants in Talents 21, and despite Gregorio doing his best to thwart him, he came first. Right after the show ended, he had to go back to Italy to talk to his mother, and then hopefully record a CD and go on tour with Youmix.

Season 2

Part 2

When Federico finally returns to the Studio, he has become a famous star, and has recorded CDs and performed all over the globe. Because of this, his head has gotten a little bigger and he has become a little arrogant, but he's still a very nice person. Another change is that he no longer dislikes Ludmila, and he even flirts with her, causing her to develop a huge crush on him, but she is determined not to let him find out.

When Federico returns, Ludmila is less than happy to see him. However, when he gives her an autograph, she is shown to have feelings for him. They become closer and Federico falls in love with Ludmila. However, her rude behavior to his friends made him angry at her. Federico says that despite what he feels, he doesn't want her near him, stating he's in love with her too. Federico hears Ludmila singing Love Is a Game to Naty and assumes its about him, which is true. While talking in the park, Ludmila says she doesn't care about him but Federico tells her he cares about her and kissed her, which was followed by Ludmila becoming angry at him. They then started their relationship after Ludmila helped Federico convince Violetta to stay in the studio.
