    Si. Solitamente i genitori scelgono queste due figure tra le persone più care o più vicine, proprio perchè devono condividere tutta la vita del piccolo, anche se a volte può capitare, per vari motivi, che questo non succeda./Generally parents choose these two figures among the most expensive or closer, just because they have to share the life of the small, although sometimes it can happen for various reasons, that does not happen.

    they are a figure that have to bring the child into maturity through the church steps of baptism, communion and confirmation. Most of the times, they are part of the family, like uncles or cousins.
