Change the order of cards (only front, and random)

I'm learning German and I want to program Anki so that it first shows me the cards from Italian to German: moreover, since the order of the cards is alphabetical, and this makes the cards too predictable, I would like to know if it is possible to set a random order, only for the front side.
of course I could make two different decks out of this one, I just don't know how!

P.S. I know that the "Italian-German" information is not important here, but I have included it because I would also ask those of you who have learned more languages thanks to anki, if it is more effective to learn first from one' own language to the other, or vice versa.

    You can set the new card order to random mode in the deck options. Once done, the reversed cards will be introduced shortly after the normal cards are shown.
