Artist's description: A foreshortening of Milan, a step back in time..tranquility and tools of the past (the sand boat and its helmsman.
The man could be anyone who is stuck to his habits and doesn't accept progress and technology entry into his life. He's looking on the unchanged side of the canal throughout the years. This scene represents the stubborn and resistant attitude towards changing. 'Undiscovered Milan', just a few steps far from the noise and bustle of Naviglio Grande.
