10591 Caverni           Discovered 1996 Aug. 13 by M. Tombelli and G. Forti at Montelupo.
Raffaello Caverni (1837-1900), a priest born in Montelupo, was also an amateur scientist. He wrote many books, the most important of them being Storia del Metodo Sperimentale in Italia, for which he received the award of the Royal Institute of Venice on 1890 May 25.
