Tuscany and the death penalty

November 30th marked a worldwide protest against the death penalty. The date was chosen to commemorate the first State to officially abolish the death penalty – the Duchy of Tuscany in 1786.

There’s little to add to this, apart from the fact that the number of States where the death penalty has been abolished is 86, two hundred and nineteen years after this enlightened move.
