On the 18th, the same day that he was three months old, Marina Fernandez Durand (30, clothing designer) and Gonzalo Zimmerman (34, businessman) baptized their first child and the first grandchild of Benito Fernandez. The ceremony was held in the San Lorenzo Mártir parish, in San Lorenzo, Salta. And even there the intimates of the family traveled.
