  • Today is Cities for Life Day which celebrated by cities and countries that are opposed to the death penalty. The date is marked by the abolition of the death penalty by Joseph of Habsberg-Lorraine in 1786 for his grand Dutchy of Tuscany. Cities that participate mark the occassion typically by illuminating symbolic statues or building.
