The first[edit]

"the first person to kill a European monarch (without toppling the monarchy) and not be executed" is sourced and all ok that way, but it is also obviously false as stated. More correctly, Bresci may be the first assassin of royalty to escape execution due to abolishment of capital punishment, and that is probably what the source intended. // 81.233.102.222 (talk) 11:12, 13 January 2011 (UTC) (OlofE)

republicans[edit]

Is there a source for the claim that he is still considered a hero by many 'republicans'? For I'm Italian and it is not clear to me who these "republicans" are supposed to be. I would be surprised if they were the members or supporters of the Italian Republican Party which is very small and rather conservative. Nicola carraro (talk) 10:26, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
