Love stories become unavoidably, with time, into something sad and melancholic. In First fight in venice two voices complement (and contradict), to narrate in present the begginings of a relationship as of the images and remembrances from a happy promising past. The importance of memory and its frailty are this love story’s principal actors, between what is gone and what is left, to the continuous sound of a 8mm projector.
