      Yes, only a few years before they would be mercilessly butchered by revolutionists, and after that the independent farmers, and after them the social revolutionairies, and after them those who didn’t agree with the bolsheviks, and after them the independent farmers, and after them the bolsheviks themselves, and after them the Chechens, the Krimtatars, the Wolgagermans, the Estonians, the Lavtians, the Lithuainians, the Poles… I think a lot of people regretted not sticking to the old world.

    Perhaps what the gentry from Mikhalkov’s unfinished Piece for Player Piano looked in real life. Kind of inert low-energy existence like today’s capitalistic “consumers”.

    Cento anni più tardi Petr Ivanovic Vedenisov, nipote del mercante Alessandro Wedenissow che nel 1852 stabilì a Milano una Casa di commercio per affari in seta, con il linguaggio universale della fotografia, alla bellezza delle sue opere a colori aggiunge nuove emozioni, facendo ritrovare legami di appartenenza a una numerosa famiglia in parte rimasta in Italia.
