Giuseppe Forti

Giuseppe Forti (December 21, 1939 - July 2, 2007) was an Italian astronomer and a discoverer of asteroids.

Forti was a trained solar physicist, and worked at Harvard's Radio Meteor Project and later at the Arcetri Observatory, in Florence, Italy.[2] He was a member of the third IAU Division: Planetary Systems Sciences.[3] The Minor Planet Center credits him with the discovery of 49 numbered minor planets during 1977-2001.[1]

He died at the age of 67 on July 2, 2007.[4] The main-belt asteroid 6876 Beppeforti, discovered by his colleges Andrea Boattini and Maura Tombelli at the Asiago Astrophysical Observatory in 1994, was named in his honor.[2] Naming citation was published on 3 May 1996 (M.P.C. 27129).[5]
