The civil ceremony can also be celebrated by a friend, friend, or others (with the exception of grandparents, parents and children), in fact the Presidential Decree n. 396 of 3.11.2000, art. 1 paragraph 3, gives the possibility to celebrate the rite to a person other than the Mayor or a State Official.

Even your friend like the Mayor on his wedding day will have to read the formula and the articles of the civil code (articles 143,144,147).
