I have just downloaded (again) your key now, and it looks like:
pub 1024D/2E604D51 created: 2006-06-11 expires: never usage: SC
trust: unknown validity: unknown
This key was revoked on 2007-06-07 by DSA key 2E604D51 Bruno Costacurta

It would seem that you have revoked both the primary key and the subkey.
I *believe*, but I am not sure, that you could have revoked *only* the
subkey, and generated a new subkey in its stead. That would have kept
your primary key "alive", with a new subkey, hopefully valid for
encryption to you.
I might be wrong, but I believe that in the present situation,
generating a new E subkey will not resuscitate your primary key.
I hope you get more definite opinions from other forum subscribers.
