Answer

Giovanni ha circa sessantacinque anni, ha i capelli corti e grigi e porta i baffi. Lui è molto romantico e sensibile. Gli piace la musica tradizionale italiana e suona la fisarmonica. Qui è con suo figlio Andrea. Andrea è sempre molto elegante e affascinante; è un latin lover! È ancora abbastanza giovane, ha circa quarant’anni, è alto e porta i capelli lunghi come i calciatori o gli attori. Gli piace andare in palestra e in discoteca. Federico, ha 11 anni, non è né alto né basso per la sua età, è un po’ cicciottello ed è molto simpatico. Gli piace stare con i suoi amici e andare alle feste.
