President Napolitano pays homage to Andreotti before funeral

Rome, May 7 - Italian President Giorgio Napolitano came to pay his respects on Tuesday as seven-time premier Giulio Andreotti's body lay in state at his Rome home ahead of a private funeral later in the day. Andreotti, a former giant of the now-defunct Christian Democrat (DC) party that dominated Italian politics after World World II until the Bribesville scandals led to its collapse in the early 1990s, died aged 94 on Monday. The funeral will take place at Rome's San Giovanni dei Fiorentini church. Andreotti did not want a state funeral.
