The masks of Colombina date back to the 18th century and represent the typical female heartbreaker. She's always free, is no slave of passion and is foxy, fond of gossip and chitchat, always looking for someone to deceive. Colombina plays the role of the servant, but she is generally more elegant than the others. The colours of her costume are usually similar to that of Arlecchino.

Very often she is the source of clashes between Pantalone and Arlecchino. The mask of Colombina was much loved by Goldoni and was often included in his comedies.
