A rather nice italic font

I happened to notice the following web page.

The word Nostalgy is in a rather nice italic font.

I wondered what it was.

I thought of Centaur Italic, I thought of Blado Italic, yet the samples that I found on the web for those fonts are not quite the same as the sample text.

The text may have been printed from a metal type font with detail differences from computer fonts.

There does seem to be the look of the calligraphy of Ludovico degli Arrighi in the font.

Any ideas please?
