8925 Boattini           Discovered 1996 Dec. 4 by M. Tombelli and U. Munari at Cima Ekar.
Named in honor of Andrea Boattini (b. 1969). After developing a growing interest in minor planets, he graduated in 1996 from the University of Bologna with a thesis on near-earth objects. He is involved in various projects related to NEO follow-up and search programs, with special interest in the NEO class known as Atens. He currently works at the Istituto di Astrofisica Spaziale of the National Research Council in Rome. The discoverers have started their astrometric activity on minor planets together with him.
