Many people before me have suggested that the man is a reflection of a young Ezio.
At first, I did not wish to believe this. It seemed too out of place.
After pondering for a while, I realize that they're right.
Just after Ezio passes away, the letter is read aloud:
"When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it."
That's the scarred 'young man' right there.
Ezio, however, tells him that Firenze might not be his problem, but the young man himself is his own problem:
"Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, misunderstanding has passed into contentment.
Love, liberty, and time: once was so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially."
