A subtle logical Proca composition fulfilling all requirements of the New German logical school, according to Hans Peter Rehm classification:

  1. The existence of a clear main plan (or basic attack), specifically refuted by a single obstacle.
  2. The execution of a preparatory plan, which specifically removes the obstacle(s), enabling the execution of the [changed] basic attack.
  3. The intensive usage of all fairy elements (i.e. fairy conditions + fairy pieces) in the preparatory plan and main plan.

The key, uncapturing a black Pao instead of a black Pawn, is again retro specifically motivated.
The realization of the Valladao theme is just the icing on the cake: the solution flows naturally, as the main focus falls on the (un)castling.
A convincing combination of several retro motifs in an exquisite presentation.

Small corrections:
The first try should be 1.Kb3:Pa3(Ke1)?
The last try should be 7.f2:Be3(e2)?
(In both cases, it is a mix-up of languages – B stands for Pawn in German, and of course for Bishop in English)
