Uzillo depicts this rain drenched street in his native village of Padua with an intensity of feeling as well as heightened emotion through his use of radiant sunlight that casts an orange glow onto the umbrella and silhouette of the pedestrian.
The architectural structure of the composition, composed of a series of archways, mysteriously frames the pedestrian and takes us both into the heart of the painting. The scene generates a feeling of ‘deja-vu’, as the painter as well as the observer retrace their steps by exploring the past.
