The strong feeling of nostalgia has passed - like all thoughts and feelings, but it will arise again and again. Silvestro Lega, is one painter who always triggers the specifically flavoured sensation:

Here is someone's "reenactment" of the scene:

Quadri vivendi, the original version:  

The same scene reenacted, with the scene from the painting inserted as a graphic banner.

I don't know who the artist/photographer is but it is cool fun.

The reenactments come from a super interesting Italian blog: http://artepignato.blogspot.ca/2010/09/quadri-viventi-di-silvestro-lega.html
