You won't be alone on the crowded streets of Venice and sometimes, you'll need the assistance of friendly factions. The key role of an assassin is to kill without being seen; to blend into the woodwork and strike when an attack is least expected. Ezio is fully capable of this but a single man can't deal with every last situation alone, which is why he'll have to enlist the help of some useful allies. Here's a video that shows several factions that are willing to lend a hand, and we figure it's not a bad idea to make some friends. An assassin has enough enemies, right?
