Francesca Caviglia[1] is a smart, caring, kind, and determined, yet also a stubborn girl who was born in Italy along with her older brother Luca, who ran the family business of Resto Band. Despite her brother's opinions about wasting their father's money by attending On Beat Studio, Francesca believes she can develop into a successful music artist in the music industry, due to the Studio's reputation of being the place where a lot of famous people have studied.

Francesca is portrayed by Lodovica Comello.


Francesca is a smart girl who always puts her friends first. She is very self-sacrificing, especially for her best friends, CamilaVioletta, Tomas, and Maxi. She gets jealous very easily, but her feelings will go away after a while, as shown with becoming best friends with Violetta.

Alongside with her stubborn attitude, Francesca is a very persistent girl who likes to achieve all the goals she puts on herself. This side of her is mostly shown whenever Tomas is around. Thanks to her developing feelings for him, she will try to do anything in order to get him to like her; and later on, this story is repeated with Broduey, until she lets Camila be with him.

Character History

Early Years

Francesca Caviglia was born to Carlo Caviglia and his wife in Rome, Italy, sometime in 1995. She is the youngest in her family and has a brother named Luca. Their family started a small business called Resto Bar in Italy and eventually moved to Argentina in order to make more money. At first, Francesca didn't like it because she didn't speak Spanish, but when her Spanish started to improve and she found out about the Studio, she started to like Buenos Aires more and more.

But later on, when they actually got to know each other, they become best friends and hang out all the time. Francesca is a very good friend, but the problem is that she gets jealous easily, but even then, she's a very nice person and sometimes she doesn't mean what she says.

Violetta is Francesca's best friend. At first, Francesca is jealous of Violetta because Tomas likes her and he doesn't have any feelings for Francesca.

Good Friend

Main article: Fedesca

Francesca and Federico are good friends. They like to spend time with each other and sing together. They like each other's company, because they're both Italians, and they have a lot of things in common. It is possible that Francesca had a crush on Federico at the beginning, but now they are good friends and enjoy each other's company.



Broduey and Fran hug

When Francesca first met Broduey, she had a crush on him, and since Camila also liked him, they ended up fighting. They both tried to get his attention, so they did a lot of things for him. Francesca sang a song for him and she wanted to give him food, but Camila stole it and she gave it to Broduey first. Then they decided that their friendship is more important than a guy, so they remained best friends and forgot about Broduey. Later, Francesca helped Broduey and Camila become a couple because she knew they both like each other.

Tomas Heredia

Tomas y fran
Tomas is Francesca's close friend, for whom she developed feelings, but as Tomas was falling for Violetta, Tomas dismissed her feelings and said it was for the best if they remained as friends. This can be considered as the classic story of best friends "falling in love", but in this case, the feelings weren't returned.


Diego Hernández

Diego and Francesca met for the first time during the Studio's Disco Party, as Diego looked for her there to return the suitcase that he has accidentally taken. Once Diego started dating Violetta, Francesca didn't support their relationship, therefore, she had a bad impression towards him. The two of them were dance partners in YouMix dance competition and won alongside Leon and Violetta. Francesca suspected that Diego had malicious plans against Violetta and spied him. When Diego's secret was out, Francesca, and like the rest, was upset with him for hurting Violetta.

In season 3, Diego and Francesca started seeing each other as friends. After the rupture between Francesca and her now ex-boyfriend Marco, Diego grew closer to her. After many encounters together, the two of them began dating. Though their relationship had its ups and downs, they are together when the show ends.

Marcesca (6)

Marco was a fan of Francesca's and he met her for the first time in a karaoke bar. To impress her, he wore a bandana to mimic her and invited her to sing Next to You with him. She then developed a crush on him and it was revealed that Marco was Francesca's biggest fan. They later became friends but Francesca refused his attempts to ask her to be his girlfriend, until she felt bad about it and they started dating, agreeing to take it slow.

    • The show is just as confusing as the Lithuanian language
    • The Italian surname is definitely Caviglia, and Cauviglia wouldn't make sense. I also have a personal preference(/bias) for Caviglia, but ...
