Italy's President Giorgio Napolitano gave unprecedented testimony Tuesday in a major trial that accuses the state of holding secret talks with the Sicilian Mafia in the 1990s.The 89-year-old Napolitano is not accused of any crime and was called as a witness who may have knowledge useful to the trial, but the hearing may tarnish the image of a president who has done much to guide Italy through political and economic turmoil in recent years.At the time of the bombings, Napolitano was president of Italy's Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of parliament.
