Pamela Prati (stage name of Paola Pireddu; born 26 November 1958)[1] is an Italian actress, showgirl, model, singer, and television hostess. She has appeared in many television variety shows and in erotic comedies. She has hosted several programmes for Mediaset's Canale 5, including Scherzi a Parte and La sai l'ultima?. She is also credited as Pamela Field in some of her pictures.


Prati was born from a Spanish father and an Italian mother, in Ozieri in the province of Sassari, northern Sardinia.

She moved to Rome in her late teens where she worked as a model and made a brief appearance on television in the variety show La Sberla in 1976. Prati attracted much publicity when she appeared on the cover of singer Adriano Celentano's album Un po' artista un po' no in 1980. That same year she debuted in her first film, La moglie in bianco... L'amante al pepe, an erotic comedy in which she had the starring role.[2] This was followed by other films, and in the meanwhile Prati began to study dance, singing and diction. She soon joined the Bagaglino Company, which was directed by Pier Francesco Pingitore and produced variety shows; Prati began making regular appearances on television as a showgirl and hostess, while she continued to act in films and television fiction. She has also performed on stage in theatrical productions.

Prati participated in three beauty contests in 1983, which included Mora più bella d'Italia, Miss Sardinia and Miss Universe.

In 1996, she released an album entitled Il tango delle 11. She also collaborated with Sandro Giacobbe on a single, "Mi innamoro di te" in 1999, and eight years later, in 2007, she released her most recent single, "Papelon".

In 1992, Prati hosted the Canale 5 variety programme Scherzi a Parte, and from 1992 to 1994, she presented La sai l'ultima?. She has also appeared on reality shows such as L'Isola dei Famosi 6 in 2008, which is the Italian version of Celebrity Survivor, and Grande Fratello VIP in 2016. In both reality shows she walked away before finishing the planned television schedule.
