Italian journalist Antonio Megalizzi, who was 28 years old, died of his injuries on Friday December 14, the Paris prosecutor confirmed.
Mr Megalizzi was originally from Trente, in the north-west of Italy, and was in Strasbourg for work, reporting on the European Parliament for network radio group Europhonica.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, said: “Deep sadness at the death of Antonio Megalizzi, a young man with a huge passion for journalism, for radio, for European institutions. I send thoughts to his family and his girlfriend, which are shared by the entire government.”

Italian president of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, said: “I send a prayer with [Mr Megalizzi] on his journey to heaven. I will always remember [meeting him] at this dinner in Mezzocorona, where he told me all about his dreams as a young journalist.”
Italian minister for the Interior, Matteo Salvini, said: “A prayer for Antonio Megalizzi, that no-one else should have to die like this.”
Two people died soon after the terrorist incident in Strasbourg, which took place the night of Wednesday December 12 as French-born, radicalised delinquent Chérif Chekatt opened fire.
A third victim died on Thursday, while a fifth person is still in a “brain dead” vegetative state.
Chekatt was killed by police two days after the attack.
