Without to create two different *.tex files, can I have the first page (the cover page) with another style geometry than the rest of the document? So that it does not leave me so much empty space on the left and fills the entire page? I want to leave the next pages unchanged.

I've read something about the combine package but I don't know how I should proceed for my document considering that I have used geometry package. I attach an image of my MWE.

enter image description here

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside]{book}
\usepackage[lmargin=7cm,rmargin=.7cm,bmargin=2cm,marginparwidth=5.5cm,marginparsep=2em]{geometry}
\usepackage{sidenotes,tabularx}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{baskervald}
\usepackage[baskervaldx]{newtxmath}
\usepackage[scr, scaled=1.1]{rsfso}
\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}  
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} 
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{mathrsfs,lipsum}

You can use \newgeometry for the title page and after it \restoregeometry. It takes the same arguments as geometry. Just one example of a new geometry:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside]{book}
\usepackage[lmargin=7cm,rmargin=.7cm,bmargin=2cm,marginparwidth=5.5cm,marginparsep=2em]{geometry}
\usepackage{sidenotes,tabularx}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{baskervald}
\usepackage[baskervaldx]{newtxmath}
\usepackage[scr, scaled=1.1]{rsfso}
\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}  
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} 
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{mathrsfs,lipsum}
