So far, the only known credited role for Paolo is in the fotoromanzo "Sulle ali della tempesta", published in several parts in the magazine Cine Tipo during 1961

In Fellini's famous La dolce vita (1960) as Servant at Maddalena's house.
He's not credited in the actual film, but the book "I film di Federico Fellini" (1995) has a detailed cast list in which he's listed as Paolo Labia with just one B
