Gino Costa was a performer in the Circo De Chocolate and Rita Ozzetti's performing partner until he left the circus to be with his pregnant girlfriend Natalia Perez.


Little is known about Gino's past except that he apparently worked at the Circo De Chocolate ever since he was a child. When a newborn Rita was abandoned at the entrance of the circus' Big Top, Gino was the first one to see her. When Rita became the circus' acrobat, Gino became her performing partner. Rita eventually developed feelings for Gino and often flirted with a lot of boys and possibly men to get his attention but to no avail.

When the circus arrived to the town of Perna, Gino became romantically involved with a waitress named Natalia Perez. When Natalia became pregnant with Gino's child, he decided to leave the circus to be with her and raise their child together. Rita became frustrated when Gino wouldn't pay attention to her and she became hostile towards him while Hana "Hatchin" Morenos, unaware that Rita was listening, asked Gino to look out for her and told him about Rita's crush on him. Gino was unconcerned about that and reassured Hatchin that Rita will meet a lot of men in her life and find the one that is perfect for her and that she would become a good woman.

The night before the circus leaves Gino and Rita perform together one last time. When the act is over, Rita smiles at him to let him know she is no longer angry at him, in which he smiles back and he is last seen walking away from the circus with Natalia.

After Gino left the circus with Natalia, it is unknown what happened to him. However, it is possible that he and Natalia got married, they moved in together and his unknown child was born.
