Blitz assassination of Uberto Alberti in 28.87 seconds [*].
Ezio is visible twice during the cutscene where Lorenzo walks with Uberto, once at the very beginning (not shown) and later over Lorenzo's shoulder as they enter the Santa Croce. Both times you may pivot Ezio with . If you release the controls Ezio automatically turns to face the square. It's amusing that you can control Ezio from such a great distance from the camera.
This blitz reminds me of Talal - a 30 second free run full of technical challenges.
0:28 - 0:31: I experimented with several ways to cross the first gap and measured this one to be the fastest. There's one moment where Ezio struggles back to his feet on top of the chimney. This animation can be avoided by decreasing the distance of the jump (move to your left on the L-shaped structure before jumping). I found this to be no faster and error prone but your mileage may vary.
0:34: Release to step off the last rafter. Otherwise Ezio will jump all the way across to the next gable and again struggle back to his feet. It's slightly faster to put two feet on the flat part of the roof.
0:50 - 0:52: Both of these steps down are with released.
0:53: Release here. Otherwise Ezio will roll forward and be out of position for the jump assassination.
0:54: Aim for Uberto and force a jump by tapping . Ideally Ezio will land next to Uberto. Too far away and he must walk to his target (running is disabled).
[*] Blitz was from a reload so the time is measured from the first frame of Ezio's movement to the first frame of the assassination cutscene. Time excludes adjusting the camera angle at the beginning.

This is a eagle strike on Uberto Alberti and then i do a Pre-Assassination also i show when you throw Antonio Maffei in a hay stack he dies.
This is me killing Uberto Alberti twice in one life. this is done by doing air tackle and rapidly pressing X (Assassinate) causing it to sorta lag it making him still live.
i would like to thank Aurllcooljay for figuring out how to move him if i could not move him the Spring-Loaded stunt might have not been possible.
The first assassination is part of the tutorial in Assassin's Creed 2. You are required to remain Anonymous or else it's total desynchronization and you start over. Regardless of how you approach Uberto, he will spot Ezio and say, "You.." Don't panic and run away. Just assassinate him quickly from the front.
